Debbies Homework

Here I am with another instalment.

Added in blue on the waterfall (mix of warm grey, ultramarine blue and white).
This created depth in the water and lightened up the water in the lake.
Added more yellow to the light green colour (ultramarine blue, Arylamide yellow).
This created highlights in the foliage to the right.
I've also started on the forground and left foliage. Still lots to do.... But will not post a progress photo until finished.

Re: Monthly Classroom: June. Knife Painting with Acrylics

Thanks stoney - I just realise that I work almost clockwise on my paintings. Must have a time-conscience mind. I mainly paint when my 1yr old sleeps in the afternoon and know I have a limited time frame.

Re: Monthly Classroom: June. Knife Painting with Acrylics

This is just fabulous, Debbie! Watching your painting progress has taugh me how to layer the paint for the effects. I like the way light catches on the knife strokes. There must be a way to control that - upstrokes vs downstrokes. So much to learn!

Very nice work.

Re: Monthly Classroom: June. Knife Painting with Acrylics

Thank you I paint the way the item grows eg: grass grows up and the frongs of the punga tree point down. (fern like branches to the right). water was going down/slightly on an angle so I painted this way. Helps create movement as well as texture.

I fully understand that.
