Re: waterfall exercise with wip

Rich, what a beautiful end result. I love your waterfall! The whole painting is very restful on the eyes, with such a soothing palette. Great job.

As always, I enjoy studying your WIP photos. So are you spraying with the Senn fixative at the time you pause for these pictures?

After spraying, are you proceeding with softer OPs, or continuing with the same ones with the help from the fixative?

Re: waterfall exercise with wip

Christel - Thank you! I'm happy to upload the wip pics, especially if it helps others.

Terri- Thank you! I'm only use the fixative after the first base layer OR when things get slick and I'm having trouble putting down layers. Typically, with most of my paintings, I only need to use the fixative one time and that is always after that first layer where I'm blocking in color and shape. I just like to pause and take pics during the process for my own study and to get a quick break from working so close. I find it helpful to pause, step back from the painting to see where I'm at as a whole.

That first layer is simply blocking in color as a background. I'm focused on color and shape only and not concerned with details at this stage.

Re: waterfall exercise with wip

Ah, okay. I've been wondering about that since you first mentioned the use of the fix. Thanks for expanding on that!

I usually find it helpful to pause and take a step back, too - but I don't always think to take a WIP picture. Glad you're in a better habit than me, because they really are helpful.
