ORIENTAL PAINTING - 4
After deciding on a dark blue, I began with the small areas in the flower petals. This was a time consuming process, since I could only do a few small areas and then spray or the areas got too dry. It took a while to get an idea of how long to wait for the drying process before I could spray, and I had to re-paint and re-spray some of the areas more than once to get the effect I wanted. I liken this to the salt technique – the timing has to be “just right”.
Then it was on to the flowers, which I knew I wanted to be in shades of red violet and fuschia.
