I have to say this painting turned out exactly as I imagined it, which happens rarely with me. I did take the time to plan it out, used limited palette, and was PATIENT to let layers dry and come back to it. The biggest thing to remember was to SAVE THE WHITE of the paper to get the bright highlights. I am bad about over painting, and am proud to say this one has just enough! I did my first layer wet into wet then used a paper towel to blot out the whites & let it dry completely. Now I know that this can work in the future if I don't rush things.
--Pretty sure there's a LIFE LESSON in there.
On to the next one!
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
