Practice

Swordfish dropping a practice torpedo, aimed at the Paddle Minesweeper HMS Glen Avon. Off the coast of Fife near Crail. Glen Avon and Usk, both ex excursion steamers were taken up by the RN. Based for a while at Granton, they were often used as 'target ship' for aircraft from the torpedo school at HMS Jackdaw, RNAS Crail.

Re: Practice

Having just done a quick and dirty WC of a Cessna, I am wondering about your technique. Did you leave an outline of the Swordfish and worked it after the background? Did you use a gum solution?

Either pencil first, or bg, then pencil
Check the W/C studio section. I posted several how I do it.

Thanks. Just searched and found two. Seems about how I imagined - it's how you do ships. The parts of WC that I find most difficult is protecting the white areas...

I used to struggle with that. Then I gave up and now use White Gouache. If necessary re wet, and dab out the area.
