Create Harmonious Neutrals
On Palette & Paper
Blending color opposites creates lovely neutrals. Here I am blending red and green to create a range of choices for the shutter colors. Shutters in sunlight will appear differently than shutters in shadow underneath porch roof.
Applying first wash.
I like the windows to appear lit from within. To achieve this I apply saturated hues. Again color opposites, this time purple and yellow.
I drop in more water allowing the colors to blend and neutralize on the paper.
When completely dry, I remove the masking.
Masking is removed. Time to step back, analyze and evaluate before moving on to detailing trim work.
