Egret in the Mists

#DoodlewashDecember2021: Fireplace. ‘Cause when the weather is like it is in this painting, I want to be sitting in front of the fireplace!

Another quick painting using Paul Ruben’s Precipatated Colors set.

I’ve come to the conclusion that paintings done with this set need to be quick. Oh, you can think them out – I had a decent idea in mind, and used masking fluid to save the shape of the egret. And I added a second layer of color, to increase the dark/light contrast. But these are colors that could easily become chalky and dull. It’s best to let them do their thang!

They’re very earthy, but very dramatic colors. A few strokes, and some contrast of dark and light, and you have the makings of a visual story.
