I have been playing with glazing this week, preparing for my next class on Thursday.
It has been fun to see if I can ‘get it right!’
One of the things Leanne told us was to make sure that each wash was completely dry before laying down another layer of wash. So , whilst I tried to make sure of this, a couple of times it wasn’t quite dry and also in one instance I didn’t quite get rid of all the excess water at the bottom of the painting, so there was a bit of bloom. Whilst I need to try not to let this happen, they create some interesting effects on the paper.
I also did a small experiment by wetting a sheet of watercolour paper and then adding colour, spraying with a fine mist and moving the sheet around to get runs and changes in the way the colour moved across the page. My daughter liked this so much she decided to help me. This was the outcome…
