On Wood - sand and basecoat
Start painting leaves first, than the
Basecoat with PG. While still whet, outline the shadow side with a
stroke of mix #2. Blend the stroke
Into the base using a bit of water. For the light side use the
same technique, using mix #1. While the
Base is still wet, reinforce. When the leaves are dry, add thin detailed
lines with mix #2 using brush #3
( on the shadow side only !).
Apply two coats of CR. When second coat is applied start painting
immediately to keep it wet until
finished. Use brown (mix #3) for the center. Pull one stroke- from the
top to the middle- to divide the
rose body from the petals. After the stroke is completed, blend it into
the base with a little water.
With W start on the inside center panel, blending with little W into the
base ( almost like a glaze ).
Pull a soft fat comma stroke, left and right from the petal. Reinforce
some W strokes for highlights.
When you work on the rose-petals, keep it moist. Outline half of the
petal with W and shade into the petal.
Reinforce with W – apply white over strokes, ….
thin – thick – thin.
Apply two coats of CR. Immediately after the second coat, blend a little
W into each petal. Reinforce,
To achieve some highlighted petals. For the center use mix #3 and add BC
dots around it.
