acrylic on paper
8 x 8 inches
In the photo below I have my rough sketch at the bottom and the tracing of it on tissue paper at the top.
(The tissue paper tracing of the buildings and road.)
I darkened the lines of the tracing paper with a Sharpie because of the dark paint already on the paper. After placing the tissue paper on the paper I brushed on some acrylic gel working from the center outward. The tissue paper is easily ripped so a light touch is essential. Once the gel dries the drawing is ready for paint.
(The tissue paper drawing darkened with a Sharpie has been applied to the painted paper. )
This painting was a great opportunity to apply all my new knowledge and try to avoid previous mistakes. I think this will make a great study for a much larger landscape.
Thanks so much for staying with my blog through two-thirds of the challenge. Please check back for the next ten days.
