Techniques to Know:
- Color Basics – Warm vs. Cool: The temperature of colors is helpful when depicting mood in your paintings. In general, warm colors consist of yellows, oranges and reds, while cool colors are greens, blues and purples. If you are looking for fierce, fiery atmosphere, warm colors are ideal. Cool colors will establish a calm, peaceful and chilly atmosphere. Always seek out a nice balance for the most realistic landscapes and settings.
- Wet-Into-Wet: This is a technique in which paint is applied to an already wet surface to create a soft, almost fuzzy impression where the different colors blend together. The pigments spread out, creating undefined shapes that are ideal for foliage, hills and miground or background elements.
- Glazing: Glazing is layering transparent paint over a dry wash. Each glaze subtly changes the tone of the underlying wash. When you layer a color similar to the dry wash, you increase the color’s intensity.
