, I missed your question on pushing the brush. I am guilty of doing that too.
I think with drybrushing or scumbling one will tend to push a little . As I understand it, I start at or near the edge where the thicker paint cloud edge is at the top of the cloud. I then lay my brush on its side and scumble back and forth from side to side or in different directions. Whatever it takes to get a smooth transition. The tips of the brushes I use for drybrushing are quite worn now except for the newest brush I am currently using. Drybrushing wears a brush down pretty fast.
, you are getting some really good dimensions on your clouds, lights/darks. The one suggestion i have is to make the transitions smoother from one value to the next. By doing this you will get more than one value in the transition and the clouds will look more seamless, as one cloud going from light to dark. Clouds have a few hard edges but still manage to look soft on those edges. Love the colors you are using too. That must be a beautiful sunrise or sunset.
, the other people looking in may not realize that you have had several classes/workshops with Jerry Yarnell while I have only had one lol.
, I have been painting this morning trying to incorporate the sky, trees, water and rocks. I have about 50 photos to resize and color correct, so will post them in groups. The stage of the painting is where the landscape has been laid in with blocks of color or shapes, so hope you all will bear with me while I try to explain what is going on in the photos.
Be back in a bit with photos. I am also planning to make this into a .pdf and will place it with the other Wet Canvas drawing .pdf's stored on my website. So feel free to download them. The .pdf will come later though and I will let you know when it is posted.
