When it rains, it pours and on this sunny, hot day, it was pouring yellow. I naturally paint yellow wet-on-wet and let this first bright wash go desert, bone dry. Next I paint her top, jeans, and sun cast shadow in juicy wet-on-dry and let it go dry. What the heck, it's not in the photo, but this is MY painting...I paint a puddle of yellow at her feet. The background goes in wet-on-dry accept for the garbage can. I wanted that a nice rich wet-on-wet. Next the side walk "grey" goes down wet-on-dry and then turned upside down to get a little bit of blending going on. Why blend with a brush when you can blend by holding the paper up, down, side ways and every which-a-way. What's a sidewalk without gum on it! Got some chin link in there and the deed is done!
