Painting Update#3: Roller Skate Tango

December 4, 2013

After some testing on this film surface with more paint to see how to lighten the background, I decided that painting it wasn’t the best way to go. The wet paint just lifted the paint underneath too much. Therefore, I chose to use a watercolor pencil to do the job. This is a Derwent brand shade of “Oriental Blue.”


I’ve stopped the process at this stage so you can see how I’m progressing. First, using a T-Square, I lightly drew dashed lines going horizontally about 1/2 inch apart to use as guides for keeping the shaded lines straight. You can still see some dashed lines on the bottom unfinished area. I’ll need to go back over it all again to smooth it out more. Vertical lines should help in that regard.
