This is a quick practice piece using the wet-in-wet technique of allowing the colour to mix on the paper, creating colour and form. This is a much looser style of painting and one which I want to move towards. As a 'fiddler' (one who fiddles with her painting!!) it would stop me from overworking a piece and ruining it - I hope. It is a style I enjoy very much so it seems the way forward for me.
The exercise is part of Mark Geeson's course 'Wet-in-Wet Techniques' at ART TUTOR and painted in my sketchbook using tubes of paint in French Ultramarine, Aureolin, Hookers Green and Burnt Umber with a number 12 round and a Rigger brush.
