House on SeventhPosted: October 31, 2012
I have been experimenting with painting first and adding line second, instead of the reverse. It makes me look at the big shapes and as well, it forces me to determine what areas I want to keep light and which areas should be dark. Of course after I draw in some lines I always need to go back to add a second wash in the really dark areas. What I like the best about this method of working is the little offsets that happen because the painting is not that accurate — in this case the parts of the porch roof that don’t quite meet up.
