In Deadly Peril. Part 2

Here's a sort of progression. The one on the left side is the underpainting, which essentially establishes the values in acrylic washes. Acrylic doesn't reactivate with water so it's safe to apply a transparent medium like concentrated watercolor (or colored ink) on top, these are used to apply the more superficial colors as you can see with the final on the right.

I paint the study simultaneously, using it as a testing ground for the colors.

Jamie Baker said...

Thanks so much for showing these, Bill.

OK, here is a dumb question; why not do the whole thing in the acrylics? IS it because the water colour is more vivid?

Thanks everybody. It means alot getting praise from such talented people as yourselves.
To answer your question Jamie, I could do the whole thing in acylics (and have many times) but I have discovered that concentrated watercolor is very vivid (and transparent), and can be extremly vivid especially the less you water it down. It is also possible to lay it down in very flat tones as well.
