WEDNESDAY WORKSHOP -- Painting on Aquabord (Part 2)
Time to complete the floral bouquet that we started last week.
I start painting the blues.
I touch the edge of the blue in the iris, with a wet brush, to get the lacy feel.
After painting the blue grapes, I lift out a few highlights.
Now, it's time to start painting the bluish-green foliage.
And then, the warmer green leaves and grapes. . .
This painting needs some darks . . .
It's almost finished, but I feel like the background is too wimpy, so I decide to add a quinacridone glaze to the background. Also, the bluish-green leaves need more darks. And, now I see that I don't like all those white flowers in the center left, so I decide to make one of them gold.
After finishing the butterflies, I feel like this painting is ready for a signature and a frame.
