I did an hour of experimenting last weekend, Helen I loved your tempura and ink drawings, and wanted to try something like that
first I have no tempura so used white OPs as mask, the acrylic ink is sepia on 5x7 paper
there is no color in the poker players, so the challenge was not met (just my own challenge-)
they look rather ghostly(ghastly)
I started a pour on the morning chairs, and hope to have something REAL to show you tomorrow, but while I was waiting for a layer to dry, I drew this on postcard size paper with watersoluble wax pastels
I have a photo of the 1 1/2 hour mark of the pour (2 layers) (1/4 sheet 140 lb)
if I can't finish this tomorrow, I will add to the overflow thread
thanks Helen, too many great photos and not enough time again.

Great stuff, I'll look out for the finish of the pour, looks like it has great potential!

Well done Bonnie, your card players look a little other worldly and very intent on the game. Like the bikes but I am really interested on where you are going with the table and chairs. The light and shadow especially across the table are wonderful so far.

Like the first two spooky card game and colourful wheels! Can't wait to see the "pour" great first impression. Not seen this done. Do you mask and pour paint across paper?

yes Kathy, I mask the whites, and pour the paint, the third layer is wet on wet with yta brush on one area at a time.
here is another 1 1/2 hours, not finished yet, lots of tweakin gon the legs, this will end up in the overflow thread.

Love the pour pic. Looks great as it is. Bikes are nice and the sepia does look spooky, but good.

I think they are all good, even the ghostly card players. When you do the pour do you mask off everything but what you want the first color, then take some of the making off for the 2nd color? I have no idea how this is done but like the effects of it. Want to be sure and see it when finished. I thought the pictures with all the shadows was interesting. It will make a great picture.

:clap: :clap: You're doing a great job on the pouring. :clap: :clap: It's the perfect way to handle all the shadows.:thumbsup: (I, however, hate to wait for everything to dry each time, so usually muck it up.:rolleyes: ) I'll look for the finish in overflow, where I'll be posting all of mine from last week, since I'm way too late this week.:o :wave:

Your card players and the bikes are both wonderful!! The chairs are INCRedible!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!

Fantastic outcome with the chairs!!!

The OPs worked quite nicely as a mask, very nice effect.
Nice treatment of the bikes, focusing on the front wheels.
Looking forward to seeing the finished chairs. It is looking really great so far.

thanks all for looking

I really like the last 2.

You nailed the light on those chairs just right on....

Interesting variety, Bonnie. The dark card players sketch is very spooky...quite disturbing in fact. The table study is very successful in conveying a sense of strong sunlight with very muted colours.

all are great but I do love those chairs :thumbsup:
