Let's Give Those Dull Greys Some Vibrancy - Lesson No.3

Before moving on to the front cottage, we quickly dabbed in the distant chimney using the same colours.  Make sure there is minimal detail, with soft edges and muted colour.  To do the main cottage's roof, I brushed in all the different tones and colours to cover the white canvas.  I then went over it again, this time dabbing with thicker paint to give texture and body, as this is our painting's focal point.  At this stage I replaced the Tasman Blue with Ultramarine Blue for the darkest darks.  Don't be afraid to give dabs of pure colour e.g. light Tasman Blue, oranges and purples over your wet paint.  This will give it vibrancy.
