I took photos of this one in stages.. I often get asked how I keep such clean colors.. well I keep a lot of the white paper showing in all my works if I can and no, I don’t use masking fluid (or very rarely).
I simply work in stages ..in SPANISH PORTAL
I worked the foliage first, and embellished the foreground with some pot plants.. here are my progress photos.
The pathway behind the gate gets more shadows and foliage on it, and I finish off with a small splatter of paint in the foreground to break the entryway up a little.
I find this method of painting a more complicated scene easier to control. Just sorting the painting into sections, and I can keep the white of the paper pristine this way as well.
Thanks for visiting..
