Mixin’ Paint

DEMONSTRATION VIDEO! Painting the Adobe walls on “Morning’s Song”.

DEMONSTRATION VIDEO! Mixing the paint for the tile roof and bricks embedded over the arches.

DEMONSTRATION VIDEO! Got the paint all mixed, now let’s paint that roof!

Paint leftover from the tile roof is used for the courtyard floor. First the light and shadow pattern is established. 

Next the perspective lines of the tiles are drawn into the wet paint with a fine liner brush. I can’t use my mahl stick here, it would limit the movement of my arm prohibiting me from making the lines straight. It helps to hold your breath as you do this!

Adding the horizontal perspective lines separating the individual tiles finishes up the floor. Moving to the door, I block it in with two shades of Pthalo Blue + White. In reality the rising sun, still low in the sky, would not illuminate the door. But I take some artistic license to allow a tiny shaft of sunlight to slip through the window and glow on the bright blue panel.

The edges of the upright boards are highlighted and the door handle installed. That’s all for today. With BIG HUGS,
