Fin­ish­ing up

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I of­ten find that as a paint­ing nears the closing stages, my big­gest plea­sure is putting fi­nal touches to it. I cre­ate a black layer on top of all the oth­ers, change its blend mode to Color Dodge and use a Soft brush to fur­ther lighten the light­est ar­eas. Then I take a break from the im­age for a day or so, be­fore re­turn­ing to it with fresh eyes.
