Here is the painting with all it's detail work done after everything has been removed.
And below to sum up a slideshow showing you the entire proccess one more time.
So here I am with my first major layer of color on the painting completely dry and ready to remove the Pebo and do the final painting layer. I've used some painters tape as well to block off larger areas. But before I start using that gum remover (eraser) type tool in the corner I take a damp paper towel and run it gently over the areas that i have pebo on. Because I paint with pretty saturated color I find that I need to remove that color before using the eraser tool or it shmears the color and ruins my whites.
And below you can see it's all removed and ready for the detail painting.
I like to make lots of juicy wet paint in pots before I start painting. This helps especially when I'm doing a large painting I have lots of paint ready for me. I didn't mix up alot of the yellow because I knew that was more of an accent color, but I will still need a bit of that as well. So here I am ready to go.
Below you can see the paint on and nice and wet.
In the above version you can see more darks added and the trunks are painted in to the background in blues and green colors. Once this layer dries I'll go in and add some shadows to the trunks and more splattering for the leaves in the back.
Once the Pebo is dry I can paint in the leaves that will be the center of attention in the painting. Notice the tree trunks are a grey blue color. That is the dry Pebo. I've also added a yellow wash to the small upper area above the leaves. Once this is dry then I will splatter on some pebo to make it resemble aspen leaves in the background. Here is the yellow wash. I was careful to blend it so there weren't any hard edges.
And above you can see the splatter on the yellow washed area. The next step will be to apply Pebo mask to the leaves and the remainder of the trunk.
