I worked on the acrylic vase painting yesterday afternoon. Enjoyed using thin glazes on the vase to bring out the tonal detail on the china by mixing the main colours ie the Amsterdam Naphthol red light and Finity Ultramarine and Quin violet. Then added the delightful bluey purples to the flowers and the birds on the vase. The blue round the neck is too strong at the moment but long way to go yet - keep layering Joannie. Little hints of yellow you can just see are the base for what will be gold leaf.
Before finishing that session I added the blues to the first layer of white gesso flowers. Not sure if I will add green leaves - dont really want to add a new colour to my palette.. they might have to end up various tones of blue mixes.
