Observations and thoughts about the fine art of painting
Sunday, June 29, 2014
This quarter sheet (on 140lb. cold press watercolor paper) selfie graphite drawing got accidentally splattered with paint while I was doing another watercolor piece. I put it aside for several weeks, and just yesterday decided to work on it with some left over colors on my palette. I layed down some big washes with a four inch wide brush both wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry. Then I started adding facial detail with round brushes.. After the facial details dried, I masked out a few shapes with painter's (house painters) masking tap and pulled off paint in those areas with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Finally a little more detailing
and voila! Fini.
