BY JOVE, I THINK SHE'S GOT IT!

Ah ha! I think I've gotten all the steps and tips right in order to do the wet in wet washes/glazes this time.




Glaze 2 - Quinacridone Rose (a cool red) over Hansa Yellow Medium (a warm yellow). When this dries, I'll try the Cobalt Blue over the first 2 glazes and see what comes of it.
Nothing more artsy today. I have 2 art magazines to pour over and then some veggies to prepare for a dinner and birthday gathering to celebrate the grands' birthdays (7 and 9 already? how can that be??)

Hello Rhonda, Thank you for your comment on my self-portrait. I think that as you paint more and more with watercolor you will uses less and less frisket. I have never use any ox gall in my water for flat washes I guess because I have never had the need to cover an entire sheet of paper with a wash. Is this an exercise?

RHCarpenter said...

Yes, Davida, this is a group exercise on a color group, trying to learn to do the light glazes of color instead of mixing them together in palette or on paper. So far, it's been a frustrating exercise! ha ha The frisket on this was so I could sweep that large flat across the paper without working around the objects - I know, it's "cheating" a bit but that's just another tool in my kit, I guess.
