Late-night color studies for the large canvas on my wall. Well. the large canvas that is sitting on my floor waiting to be painted. I have already decided that I need muted tones in that area. The corner is dark though, so maybe a lighter canvas would be nice.
I used a palette knife and the inexpensive Hobby Lobby Master’s Touch watercolor paper. As I rotated the surface around, I noticed it could work either way.
When I had finished, I wasn’t sure about the linear marks I had made. Didn’t quite work. So I took some cough drop wrappers that were on my desk and used them to move the paint around. Haha.
Next, I tried the opposite, more mid-tones, and less of the light. I tried to form hills with the knife. I need practice. 🙂 I like how the paper texture shows up here and there.
