Basic Starter Lesson
Colours used French Ultramarine Blue
Indian Red …or Light Red
Brushes 45 mm Hakes (one used dry and one used wet) A
A Mop brush can be used instead.
One No 8 Round
One No 2 Rigger
One Dip pen for masking and fine lines.
Sketch out the scene very lightly using a HB pencil
Draw a horizontal line across the bottom third of the paper and carefully follow this line by applying a thin line of masking fluid
Also a small amount on the boat.
Apply a pale wash to whole of paper and check that it is all covered and well soaked because we need to work into this initial wash.
Now add a small amount of Naples Yellow to central area above and below waterline
Now add a strong mix of F/Ult/Blue + Indian Red to the top corners and bottom corners and remember these will be the strongest because they are the nearest now add some slightly weaker mix to central areas, and now blend in very lightly using the dry soft Hake brush and keeping the blending strokes horizontal for this type of scene.
Whilst still reasonably wet add the foliage line of trees using same colours and quite strong mix (remember the tree tops will find there on various heights just by pushing upwards with the No 8 brush ,try to copy the trees below the masking line at the same time.
When all dry remove masking fluid and tidy up the white line if it appears too thick
Complete the boat and faint reflection
Enjoy and experiment.
