Stage 3


Here i've lifted the highlights out of the painting. I just took a wet brush and painted the shapes i wanted, then hit it with a paper towel and sucked up the wet watercolor. The Acrylic is coming through in those areas. Is it dead yet? I'm still going to finish this. I'll reserve judgment until then. I do think this piece would have benefited from some reference material and more thought, but in a class demo, i just don't have the time. Firing on instinct.
