Finally - Finished -
the Glazed Elephants!
In some areas this painting has at least 10 layers of glazed color, other areas only 4 layers. The layers remind me of my colored pencil process, layers and layers to get to the color you want. I imagine, if I knew anything about watercolors, the layering process is probably the same.
Someone asked what kind of glaze paints I used - just regular acrylic paint in a tube added to an acrylic Glazing Medium (very little paint and lots of medium).
I'm going to try this glazing process on a landscape painting next. I usually avoid landscapes, but I think I could get some nice effects with the glazing - oh but I do have major problems with the color GREEN!
