WATERCOLOR IN PROGRESS
This is a painting from a photograph I took on the river in
Boerne, Texas. After drawing the image, I put a blue wash on
the background and layed saran wrap on the wet wash.
After letting the saran set a minute, I lifted it and the
texture left looks like the motion in the water.
See the photo below.
After painting the water, I began painting the dark beak
and the dark on the feathers. Then I painted the
midtones and light feathers leaving the white paper for
the white high lights on the goose.
The next step, I began painting the
reflection of the goose in the water. I still have
some to do on this step.
This painting was also a class project at the Upstairs Gallery
in Arlington, Texas. I will be posting some of my students
