so I went back to his splashing paint DVD to do a couple of practice paintings. These are bigger than usual at 18″x24″ and it is definitely easier to control the edges.
The reflections exercise. The combination of the wet in wet trees overlaid with crisper edges and the final small twigs works well here I think. Most is done with the bristle brush with details put in with a rigger. Colors are the usual Lovett palette of antwerp blue (John actually uses phthalo which I find too overpowering), burnt sienna, ultramarine and a dash of alizarin crimson.
