7th Lesson - Greek Steps
Thought we'd try and sort out what to do with the blank white wall. I decided to fill it with bougainvillea. I painted in the branches first, to get an idea of where I wanted the flowers. The flowers were then dabbed in straight from the tube of Scarlet. I then darkened the Scarlet with some Ultramarine Blue and dabbed that into the right side of the flowers for shadow. I highlighted the left side of them with a little bit of Scarlet and white mix. I wanted them to sit into the wall better, so I mixed a soft purple colour and dabbed around the edges of the flowers with this, mainly on the right-hand side.
