Title and Medium
Opaque Tulip on canvas 9" x 12"
Winston & Newton Galeria opaque colours - Cerulean Blue, Titanium white, Cadium Yellow Medium, Cadium Red medium
I have decided to paint the tulip since I painted it previously in transparent colours. I had to mix the opaque colours that I have because the opaque colours palette is limited. It was quite a different experience. Opaque colours dries quicker than the transparent colours and to try and do some shading is difficult. To get the background colour I had to soften the blue with the titatium white. Opaque colours don't have depth like the transparent colours. It was really an experience to paint only in opaque.
What I'd Do Differently
- It was a great learning curve for me and I enjoyed it.
