st peters project final stages

More washes of light red with a tiny touch of ult blue were used over the brick buildings on the left and I used the burnt sienna/ ult blue mix to paint in the windows etc. remove masking around windows.
Adding light washes of the same colour over a previously dried surface with help strengthen the colour gradually. I used this method to adjust the colour of the buildings throughout the painting.
The water has to be painted wet in wet to start with to get the reflective colours going into the water. after that surface marks and ripples are added to give the water a surface. You can work the water instages if its all a bit daunting for you, starting at the right hand side with your lightest colours ..the water in teh distance has more light on the less colour is needed.
As you pull in the reflections through the main section of the painting, use horizontal lift outs to break up any heavy looking reflections and add light to the surface.
Paint in the fence and lampost with your black mix try and create a little light on the top of railings by sucking a little colour back out before paint drys.
Add your shadow mix across the walls ( ult blue & tiny bit of light red or burnt sienna & crimson depending on colour brands as prevoiusly mentioned) Shadow mixes should be transparent and glaze not cover the under-painting.
Hope this helps complete the project  for you. see you in class for the finished results.
