ZSL Skybird

View from ZSL Whipsnade Zoo  ( The colours are  French Ultramarine, Burnt Umber and Raw Sienna, as stated in the notes, but the Medium seems to be more Granulation than Blending, notwithstanding the label.)

Skybird on Regent’s Park

Regent’s Park Boating Lake and a Seagull who wanted to be in the picture. The colours are Burnt Sienna with Raw Umber, Burnt Umber, Prussian Blue and French Ultramarine, but the Texture Medium I used made the colours very easy to remove, very much like Lifting Preparation would.

The Ways Of Autumn 3

Amelanchier – as previous image, but slightly different outlines and colours, to try out granulating. However I found myself unable to use the granulation medium. It just split the paint for me and so I started another with blending medium and similar colours to before. I will try using just one colour at a time.

The colours are Aureolin, Permanent Rose, French Ultramarine, Cobalt Green Deep, Burnt Umber and the medium is Gum Arabic with water.

The image is the same as the one used below, same outline and same colours but without using block colours this time.
