Painting the Lake and Fall Foliage

VIDEO DEMONSTRATION: Painting the Fall Foliage

Now the trees below the terrace are finished, I can paint the railing over them. Balancing my T-Square on the top edge of the canvas, I have to be very careful not to touch the wet paint with the ruler. I slip the fingers of my left hand under it so it keeps the ruler raised up a little bit. Then I can slide my brush along the edge of the ruler to make certain my balusters are perfectly upright. You may click on this or any of the other images to see them larger.

The seat cushions are painted with a mix of Dioxazine Purple + White. Then I finish the table, glasses and wine bottle.

The diagonal basket weave of the chair back is drawn over the wet paint of the table and wine bottle with a brush dipped in a thin mix of MUD (2 parts Ultramarine Blue + 1 part Alizarin Crimson) + Liquin.

We’ll be planting the flowers in the large ceramic containers in our next session. Grab some garden gloves and you can come give me a hand! With Colorful Smiles,
