Glazed Whitework Lesson Bundle or Ebook
I used to paint using oils when I was much younger. After cancer, I switched to gouache and acrylics. But in more recent years I don't like to take that long to finish off a picture, maybe a few hours and no more. This lesson is based on a technique that is often used by painters, where they apply thin layers of glazing over the colored work to create deep and rich coloring.
Are a visual learner or a reader? Now you can choose:
I wondered how I could adapt those painting techniques to simpler tools, and I came up with this coloring technique using watercolors and colored pencils.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to work a complete project, beginning to end, on how to use this very interesting technique. The fun thing is that you can adapt and use Zentangle patterns to create these rich and painterly designs.
Create rich, deep coloring
• Work on a project inspired by traditional painters
Glazing is a technique that is commonly used by traditional painters to apply thin layers of diluted paint over canvas, to achieve rich, deep coloring.
• Learn the unique Whitework technique
Using only watercolors and colored pencils, you'll learn my unique technique of creating Glazed Whitework, where layers of coloring chisel and gradually sculpt the drawing.
• Re-purpose your older work
I have so many drawings that never worked out well, or weren't finished. Now you can re-purpose those pictures to create exquisitely artistic pieces.
• Learn to layer colors
The reason why paintings look so complex and deep is the use of many layers. Learn how to create that same effect using easily accessible media such as watercolors and colored pencils.
• And so many tips and tricks!
Every lesson is packed with tips that can help you with ALL of your projects and make you a better artist.
The beauty of this technique is that it uses a minimal amount of supplies, only watercolors and colored pencils. Any type of watercolors will do. It is the layering of colored pencils that makes this type of work create that rich, deep effect.
