|Painting tips--good, bad, and downright ugly.|

Anybody Home?, 1980, Jim Lane. Here the underpainting was
a blue-gray while the windows were left white to be glaze in
using warmer tones.
|Glazing in oils by Will Kemp.|
|Transparent oil colors|
ideal for glazing.
|A visual painting tip.|
|If this looks a little too neat as compared to your palette, you might|
want to spray paint a pizza pan, storing it in a garbage bag.
|A sample only. Ideally, the artist should use |
two glazes, one yellow, the second blue.
|With acrylics, it's all in how you "lay it on."|
|Stunning eyes, pink-blue watercolor portrait-- |
drip, dribble, splash, and splatter on neutral white paper.
|Choose a paper which matches your style and watercolor technique.|
|The above papers are white but the image has been |
adjusted to better show the texture of each weight.
|When each watercolor is dry, an opening in the binding allows |
for the sheet to be cut from the block. I always used a butter knife.
|Is all this necessary?|
