|Mike Beeman demonstrates the painting of a chickadee |
on UArt using alcohol
as a medium for rendering the under-painting.
|The background & mass of the chickadee are loosely rendered.|
Outlines are virtually non-existent allowing corrections
of shape and color to be established both within and outside the figure.
|Specific details of the beak and eye are accentuated|
and a greater value range established.
|Mike paints with the pastel medium as he demonstrates |
the rendering of a chickadee and a common sparrow.
|Please note the transfer of colors both within & outside|
the figure. Middle values were established first
and lighter and darker values added afterwards.
The sharing of these hues prevents
the bird from feeling like a "cut-out"
pasted onto the background.
