Castle Geyser 1
July 20, 2016
I wanted to try a new style of painting, and thought that a photograph I took, 25-ish years back, of Castle Geyser in Yellowstone Park might be a good subject. My idea is to under-paint a tonal image, and then try and overlay transparent colours on top - probably acrylic inks as they would be quite fluid - in keeping with the subject matter.
13/07/16 9:45:00 AM - 1:15:00 PM, 75% -> 02:37:30: Marked out edges of lowest 2 tonal levels.
18/07/16 12:05:00 PM - 3:50:00 PM, 75% -> 02:48:45: Completed darkest tone, and then worked on next 3 levels up (leaving one more level).
20/07/16 9:30:00 AM - 12:40:00 PM, 75% -> 02:22:30: Go over the various levels to boost opacity and define edges better.
