Curving Walk

SF1516 Step 21

The upper level of the walk is covered, establishing the light and dark pattern. Working forward I begin on the steps, making the upright plane darker.

SF1516 Step 22

The top, flat surface of the step is lighter because it receives more light from above. Now I cover the lower level of the entry walkway. The area, entirely in shadow, is made cooler or bluer at the far edge near the steps to make it recede.

SF1516 Step 23

Curved perspective lines are drawn into the wet paint of the upper level with a fine liner brush. Please remember, you can click on any of the images to see them larger.

SF1516 Step 25

After continuing the perspective lines on to the lower level I make the horizontal ones separating the individual tiles.

SF1516 Step 26

The painting, still attached to the cardboard, is taken off the easel and placed on my taboret. I just hold the wet art by the cardboard backing and don’t get paint all over everything! With the piece flat it is easy to continue the floor over the edge and on to the bottom of the gallery wrapped canvas.

Tile work is finished, we’ll be planting flowers in our next session. Why don’t you grab a pair of gardening gloves and come help? HUGS,
