Garlic ‘n limePosted: August 27, 2014
In today’s sketch I used a technique I practice often in landscape painting but not too frequently when I paint a still life. My first wash (the warmish one) covers everything except the white areas that I want to save. The subsequent layers of paint, applied in glazes, are used to build up the mid-tones and darks. The hope, of course, is that that first warm wash will unify the sketch and that the garlic and lime will flavour a Mexican meal.
