Mood Painting Progression
This is a visual look at the progression of one of my mood paintings. The starting base to the painting is three or four layers of watercolors drying with a blow dryer in between each one so the colors don't become murky. The more layers the painting has the more texture and variety of color intensities the painting has. Not all layers overlap the previous one so some of the colors are more translucent than others. After layering the colors I go in and do my details with fine, black archival ink. This defines certain things I want to bring out in the painting. These photos show the beginning stage of the painting and the finished piece.
