From the Aquarellista Headquarters 3
The portrait is coming along fine – the shape, colours and features of my ‘muse’ are basically done.
Still some tweaking is needed, for instance I am not yet completely happy about his glasses, but I will wait with that until the background is done, because then I can work with a reflection, based on something that is actually there.
Right now I am working on the chair, which is coming along fine. Main colour used for that W&N burnt sienna.
The most important colour for the background is going to be W&N Payne’s Grey. It will probably have green and red tones.
And on the right there will be lots of white – but that is a true timesaver in aquarelle, the parts you don’t have to paint!
