How I created my DLP from Art To The 5th ..Cityscape..Part 2..week 5 (Part 1 Here)



..here I am just adding a few shades of blue craft paint and blending a bit




..do a layer of paint, and then wipe some off…




now Im adding some more paint..a different color and  a different brand..this is Golden Liquid acrylic..it has a much higher pigment content, and a little goes a very long way..it is also not as much of a “matt” finish so it will add to the luster of the sky..


..I squirted a bit of water onto the page..

..I will continue on to the other side making it a bit lighter  on the left as that is the sunrise side…I also journaled about what lies beneath each of us and our art..at this point it is  still needing more layers of blues….but sometimes I work on other parts and go back to the layers..




after more layers of blue I will begin adding some details on the buildings..and the sky..
