Some things to keep in mind.
- Tom’s canvas is nearly dry
- He moves the color around the canvas to make sure he has balance.
- When you create the branch on the tree, make sure you wipe All the highlight color off the brush before adding the shadow color. Since it is such a small branch, it really is handy to be able to add both colors at once.
- Because the canvas is so dry the reflections in the water go on easier. The color sits on top of the water instead of blending with the color below. It really is worth letting the canvas dry.
- Remember, everything far away appears vertical and horizontal. Try to get your tree trunks in as straight as you can.
- If your canvas is fairly dry you can wipe off anything you add, that you don’t like.
- Make sure when you add the turbulence in the water, that you match the color up above in the sky.
- Tom uses very little paint at this stage. The more you learn from Tom, the less paint you will use as well.
- We are always here to help. Just reach out to us and let us know what you need.
Happy “Mountain River Part 3” Painting!
