beneath blue mountain gums
for the love of the mountains
French Ultramarine Blue
Listening to others say time and time again, how they love masking fluid, even buying the most expensive one on the market only to leave it in the bottom of my art bag as i don't really care for the stuff taking into account my experiences thus far which left me saying in reply "What a croc!"
Very casually going through his arsenal of brushes and other weapons of choice before commencing one of his masterpieces in his DVD Innovative Watermedia, he generously goes through his process beginning with preparing paper, right through to the signing and stamping of his completed work.
Thank you NNG for providing many artists with an insight into your methods some of which i am having a play with in this latest WIP.
Sticking with a familiar subject at least provides me with some comfort whilst out of my depth with the process. Baby steps here... but quite excited to see what i can achieve and where i can go.
As you can see the masking fluid behaved. Soap really is a wonderful thing!
Chocky started out keen to help and to watch this morning... it was all too much after about 10 minutes!
I do adore his company while I paint even though he sleeps half the time.
This was a great exercise extending my skills in watercolour.
Thanks to those of you who have dropped by, leaving your encouraging comments, i really appreciate them.
