Ad­dress the sur­round­ings

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I work on the back­ground to es­tab­lish the mood of the paint­ing. I choose a Cal­lig­ra­phy Brush with Opac­ity rang­ing from six to 16 and at dif­fer­ent sizes, and paint a deep body of wa­ter that Ophelia’s float­ing in. I use short, quick brush strokes and base wa­ter colours: dark and sil­ver grey, white and a lit­tle ma­rine blue. I want to cre­ate wa­ter tex­ture, rip­ples and re­flec­tions.
