Black HUB IPA Can

W16 4 2 TFK HUB IPA 001Okay, first off, do NOT sketch in a black watercolor pencil when your first coat will be an Indian Yellow or Quin Gold.  Dumb.  I tried to wet and wash it off;
alas, it did not work well.  Also, the reason my sketch is off to one side is that I will be using this for a recipe IF my risotto turns out tonight, bacon and beer, yum.
(It turned out amazing, Recipe here!)

Did this for the last of Tracey’s Delicious Paint Class where we were to try to do underpainting with a black can or black box.  I used an Organic IPA from HUB in Portland Oregon, and built it up with:
underpainting of Indian Yellow,
pop of the oranges,
masking fluid,
underpainting of Paynes grey + Indigo,
coat of Shungite + Sepia,
removal of masking fluid, final touch up with pen an Quin Gold.

I like the quality of the black I get with the underpainting!
