How to Paint a Quick and Easy Background in Oils - Lesson No.2
I decided on a blue/aqua theme, but it could be any colour as one cat is grey and the other white. On my palette I mixed a very dark blue-green, a mid blue, a very light blue and a very light lemon. I used Prussian Blue and Lemon which I thought was rather pretty. I dabbed in the darks first, then mid-tones, light blues and lastly filled in all the gaps with the lemon mix. Then it's just a matter of feathering it all off gently so that it is very soft and out-of-focus.
A bit more feathering off with a soft, dry brush and I'm done.
