therefore i will go over the lessons that we tackled yesterday for the benefit of those who couldn't be there for the entirely. yeh, that's you, lori and joan.
|first wash of cobalt blue: graded dark to light at top|
and then light to dark at the bottom. preserving
the white of the bird and its reflection
|second step: medium value flat variegated wash|
down to the tops of thestream-side rocks. tops of
rocks and twigs/stems scraped in when wash
had lost its sheen when viewed from the side.
here are the steps as i demo'd them in class. we are about half finished with this painting and it will be finished at the next class on monday.
