Well, the next step was to create the "Great White Shape (GWS)" and make sure it works. Then, taking a watercolor pencil (so it blends off later), I drew the GWS on the watercolor paper over and around the things there. The GWS includes anything you want left white and anything you want to be pure color - so, of course, your Center of Interest (COI) is inside the GWS.
Next? Choose the temperature dominance of the painting. Done. It will be cool. And the body of the woman and some of the chair and rakes will be warm so they will be the COI.
Next? Misket any small area I want pure white and splatter some misket over the paper (to add texture).
Next? With a very light wash of color in a mix of cools, I need to paint around the GWS, blurring the lines here and there. Before that dries, I can do some things to create texture = misting water, pouring on salt in various sizes (popcorn salt, table salt, kosher salt, sea salt - did you know you can even use Epson salts?). I could even splatter more misket to prepare for the next layer, if I want. I used popcorn salt and table salt and large kosher salt on this.
Now it has to dry completely - bone dry before the next step.
