WIP – Dory Dinghey Tender – 2nd Update

23 Nov


After applying Frisket to preserve the ochre areas on the boats and dock, I prepared paint for the next pour.  I have a number of stackable little metal cups that I use for this.  Squeeze out a generous amount of paint, add a bit of water and stir with a plastic pallet knife until completely dissolved.  This method is not for painters who are afraid to waste paint or are frugal with their paint! For this pour I mixed Cerulean and Thalo Turquoise.

I always test the mixture on a scrap piece of watercolor paper to ensure I am hitting the desired tone.  On this note, I use the same piece of paper so I am testing over the previous pour mixture.


The pour required more intensity that Cerulean alone would achieve.  Again, I set the pot of mixed paint aside for the sharpening up stage or the defining stage.


Once all this has dried, I removed the Frisket from the front of the center boat and applied fresh Firsket to the edges I want to keep clean. Armed with my spray bottle, mop brush (to coach the paint along frisket lines), studio apron and a ton of paper towel (to clean up my spills) I am ready. The next pour will be a greener shade with the intent of defining the center boat and start to deepen the water tones.
