Wednesday’s art group was inspired by Monet’s Cliff Walk at Pourville.
We looked at 3 different techniques for creating water effects.
Going left to right
Oil pastels – draw the rocks, light blue squiggles around. Dark blue shadows under the rocks and some dark blue squiggles. Finished off with a bit of light blue shading on the rocks.
Soap – load the brush with watercolour paint, rub on a bar of soap and paint waves. The soap shows the brushmarks.
Wash – paint the paper with water. Paint on a wash of pale blue watercolour paint leaving areas of white. When dry use a thin brush to add ripples of dark blue.
All techniques come from this book which I highly recommend!
