Flamingos Lesson 5

Using very wet paint, and softened edges, I applied some French Ultramarine Blue to create some of the areas where I want to have some darker values. Even though I am starting to build darker values, the paint application is very wet.

In this detail you can see where I have washed over the green line that I painted in earlier. Each wash glaze will soften the edges of the previous wash, and, if kept transparent, the glazes will build rich, intense, colors.
