Here is another blending example on the same painting using cool colors.
|When painting with paint markers I always try to work from light to dark, since light colors can be covered up easier.|
For the waves I use Posterman's Light and Dark Blue, Purple, Green, and White.
|Start with a little Purple in the darkest areas.|
|...and blend with Dark Blue.|
|Add Light blue just outside the Dark Blue.|
|for large areas like this if you need a stopping point, bu sure it is where you have blended back to the origonal marker color, its hard to match shades.|
|Coming now from the shoreline on the right to the blend I have already done on the left.|
I start with the purple.
|Next I do a line of Dark Blue right next to the purple.|
|A section of light blue just outside of the dark blue.|
|...and (you guessed it) blend!|
|Blending light blue to white makes sweet highlights.|
|Green makes a great addition to water as well, here I blended Light Blue to Green, back to Light Blue.|
|Using 5 colors you can create all sorts of cool blends and shades.|
Next step adding highlights and lowlights, this is what brings it all together, add definition, and mack this painting sick!
