Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Intermediate and Advance Watercolor Class. I am just picking up from where we left off and have completed the Value Study painting. Unfortunately I'm not as tech savvy as I used to be and although I filmed myself completing this painting, I haven't quite figured out how to edit and upload it online. So now I've got lots of time to learn how to do that, so look for video resources coming soon.
Our next project is to paint an animal from our own photographs. Please look for a photograph with high contrast, one where you can see all of the value levels. We will use a window of your house as a "light box" to trace your image. If you want to get started on that, remember the tracing rules:
Until next time! NAMASTE and I miss you ALL!!
As you can see-I've completed the value study of the Terrier that we were working on.
There were quite a few Value 3's and 4's that needed to be added before I went to the white ink. Remember that we are using Dr PH Martin's Bleed Proof White Ink. I added some water into the mix to dilute it and found that it became water soluble. This was helpful for toning down the white areas making them into a Value "1/2". But be careful if you do this since you can quickly smear a white opaque coat over your Value 2-4's which would destroy all your hard work.
Here's an image that Ellen shared of the white dog she was working on:
Way to go Ellen! Please post any comments or questions about how to finish our project and share any images as well!
