This week we worked up the portrait we started last week by adding more layers wet in wet of a more warm ochery and sienna type. we were still adding purples and blues but predominantly browns, by adding a clear wash first to get a smooth finish.

We alternated this portrait with another one which we worked up with small blocks of colour wet on dry, after we had created a wet in wet foundation colour.
Our blocks of colour had to be translucent to show the previous colours beneath to form an interesting hemogenous mass of colour

Here is a sample sheet of glazes built up.
Some of us did a quick exercise in wet in wet in preparation for washes on the smooth portrait.
One learner chose to do a landscape with the same technique as the black man portrait
