I forgot to take a photo of the cyclists before I started the process of exposing the whites and painting the darks. The two on either side was my 2nd pour done at the same time with the same colors. This was the first time I had poured with acrylics and so wasn't aware of how the colors would mix. I can't believe I got so much green because I started with yellow, then orange, then teal, and then a little phalto blue. I will learn more in the future but will stay closer to my favorite colors to use in this process to highlight the subject matter.
I am not finished with the cyclists but at least wanted to share with you because the process is so different than painting with watercolor alone on Yupo.
The 2nd pour isn't matching any of the images I sent to her so will be either doing another pour over this or finding an image that will work. I guess I don't paint that many green scenes from my photos.
I won't post again probably until Friday. I got sick from the alcohol smell with that many people using it, especially myself and those around me were using a lot yesterday to take off the acrylic. I'm hoping to go back tomorrow.
Comments always encouraged and welcomed!!
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
