Avignon Side Street
Fluid Acrylic on Yupo "Batik" technique. 17.75x11 matted/framed 26x20 On our first trip to France we had a very quick visit to Avignon before returning to Paris. A tour guide suggested our route and this was one of the photos which captured the essence of that walled city. The lady stirred up three pigeons as she approached us. This technique used was to masque the lightest values and then paint with a light mixture of colors. You then masque the 2nd values and paint with a stronger mix of paint. You continue this through 4 values. You remove the masque and then paint your darkest values . The glow you get with this method is incredible.
