I enjoy experimenting and will use objects rather than brushes to apply paints. I have been hoping something would inspire me to pick up a paintbrush again, and this has done the trick. Thanks for sharing your work.
Experiment before applying to final painting to check for color intensity. But you are certainly also very patient when you cut and prepare every little detail to make it truly practical — thank you very much for your sharing Lis. I enjoyed the Venetian paintings very much and painted both of them! I then start to apply this colour to the top section of the painting and begin to vary the intensity and variety by altering the colour using yellow and white.
Dry brushing creates course and irregular strokes of color. Thanks very much Abel, hope you enjoy painting the scene. I finally settled on this lemon tree as it had some lovely negative spaces in-between the branches and a great muted grey wall behind, that added a nice colour balance to all the ranges of greens in the tree.How to Paint Tree Bark in Acrylic - Quick Tutorial

Tricia 15 Jun 2017 Reply. I like to print the step-out and keep it in a binder for reference when I really like a painting lesson, so Thank you! Rob 15 Jun 2017 Reply.
This impasto area is only on the lemons so it makes them stand out more from the background. Please Share This. I so appreciate them!

This acts as a sturdy mixing palette when sketching but can store neatly within the box when travelling. Will Kemp 15 Aug 2017 Reply. Namrata 15 Jun 2017 Reply. Hola Will, I live in Mallorca and have a finca full of lemon treets, figs, oranges, bourganvilla etc. Think of it as speed-painting. Made me realise how important building up the layers is.
