I have a short update on the progress of my painting to show.
I wanted to try something a little different and use a palette knife. There’s not much thickness to the paint, which is important to avoid with gouache, but the knife gives a nice texture.
I masked off the poles with tape, and brushed a very thin wash of light blue across the sky area. Next I scraped on a very thin coat of pure titanium white with the knife. I’ll get to the water area next using the same process.
