More Transmittance


Day two of underpainting. Most of the picture is complete now. I'll take a day off for Art Support then finish this on Thursday.

Most of the work was down with a size zero Pro Arte Sterling Acrylic brush which worked well and has lasted longer than my same sized Escoda Mongoose, cheaper too. For details I use a tiny Prolene 000, even on underpainting. The pic is about 60x40cm so I'm pleased to get this far so quickly.

Onward!

Good work on those droplets.

Nice of you to pass on information about your supplies.

I'm waiting to see the whole painting.

Wow! That's a lot of ground to cover with such a small brush! It's looking good. Can't wait to see the entire composition. -Don

Very cool, Mark! This will be another great Sheeky painting.

Thanks for the comments everyone. The next big step is a painting of outer space, a nebula. Not something I've really painted before.
