Illusion of water...




One of yesterday's subjects and demo during painting class; how to paint the illusion of water in a jar... What makes it look like water? How apply the paint to obtain the impression of it?
I mistreated these two samples a little as I showed different things, like making whites, adding more paint on top dried layer which means also starting another paint and drying cycle, and so on...
This session was preceded, last week, by learning how to make colored grey tones with primary colors. And how to match your mixes with any chosen color (except dark colors), by doing swatches using primary colors.
