Another wild paint along with Vlad. Can’t wait for the next one Sunday. Painting boats. Love boat paintings
10×15″ Kilimanjaro 300#. I decided to use Kilimanjaro to see if it scraped like the nasty arches did.
The Arches scrapes great to do leaves, branches or grass. Maybe it will scrape for boat lines. Or I can use my dads antique arches that’s probably 20 years old. I know it scrapes great.
The photo. Kind of a nothing photo don’t you think except nice sunny light, umbrellas and a beautiful old building.
The value sketch
First wash- the water stage
Colors growing. Aka more first wash. Umbrellas really orange but odd it looks so red in this photo.
The second darker washes more pigment. The tea stage.
The last layers. Lots of milk. Aka thicker paint. I think mine moving be too thick.
And the way it is now. Kinda wishing I had not added the Browns and the grey trees on the left. Sometimes I get up in the morning and like them a lot better. We shall see right?!
Had fun drawing all over it with my white gel pen zip zip and always solid unlike white gouache.
Margaret ready for bed but has to watch one more episode of Schitts creek-my current binge. Soooo funny on Netflix’s. Watch more than one before you pass judgement. Xoxoxox
