My Scene


Wet the surface of the paper wash on
New Gamboge and Cadimum Orange
over the people….the center of interest..

While paper is still wet quickly
add mid to darker values of cool reds
greens, blues and purples out to the
papers edge. The challenge is to
keep colors edges soft and graded

After the paper is totally dry
shadows are used to define the
subject. The contrast of lights
and darks at the center of interest
are the main players. The dark edges
are out of focus with hints of color.


Calligraphy and final darks where
they were needed…..I introduce
‘Two Please’
