This has been a busy weekend! A lot of painting – certainly beats housework, I tell ya.
Here is another study from Rick Surowicz’s YouTube channel. This is the “Inn at Brandywine” study. Again, use of masking fluid, glazes, warm and cool greens. If you like to paint and want to get better, you cannot go wrong with his videos. They are detailed and informative – info on brushes, colors, techniques, thoughts on what he is doing. All very helpful and insightful.
Using the masking fluid is becoming easier, as is thinking ahead. Like painting in negative space, planning ahead is a different way of looking at a painting for me. It’s hard to explain. The thing is, while kind of frustrating to do, it is becoming more of a part of painting, if that makes any sense.
Below, Rick’s excellent video.
