I took Ash's Mole to my water media class with Charlie Myers, thinking to spend the three-hour session working on her mole, and lo and behold, he decided to show us a video--something he normally does (DID!) only during lunch. It was a Tom Jones video and then we were told, after seeing the video once, to paint the picture described in the video. We are supposed to be learning how to make fog and rain falling from clouds and how to block out white areas etc. Mine didn't work too well in the mole--the paper didn't respond the way the arches paper does, so I did a second one on real Arches 140-pound paper, which will be in Ash's pocket. It's smaller, but came out better, I think.
Click the images to view them larger. The second one, if clicked, will be larger than it is in real life.
I am running a little behind, I apologize.
The video we watched was a full-length Tom Jones video of a whole painting, but here's a short one on You-tube that is very similar (but not exactly the same) as the beginning of the one we watched.
