This place is fantastic for artists - I visited Hornfluer whilst on holiday in Normandy about 1990 and it is full of inspiration, with fab galleries and lots of bobbing boats! Follow link for more information

Add the mix ultramarine/burnt sienna mix to the darker areas of the foliage and paint a strong mix of red/rose to the flowers. And thats it - done!

USE MASKING FLUID WITH AN APPLICATOR TO KEEP AREAS OF COLOUR AND SLOWLY BUILD UP LAYERS, STARTING WITH THE PALER TONES FIRST. REFERING TO THE PUPPY PORTRAIT BELOW, I STARTED WITH WHITE, THEN ADDED BURNT SIENNA MIXED WITH COBALT/ULTRA MARINE GRADUALLY DARKENING THE ARTWORK. WHEN ALL AREAS WERE COVERED WITH COLOUR AND DRY (I USE A HAIRDRIER TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS) I PEELED OFF ALL THE MASKING TAPE AND ADDED MORE DETAIL WITH A VERY SMALL BRUSH.

TO CREATE SEA FOAM AND WAVES SPATTER MASKING FLUID ON TO WATER COLOUR PAPER WITH A TOOTHBRUSH, LEAVE TO DRY THEN BUILD UP LAYERS OF WATER COLOUR FOR THE SEA COLOUR. I USED THIS TECHNIQUE FOR THE SEA IN 'GIRL ON MIRISSA BEACH' I ALSO ADDED SPOTS OF WHITE ACRYLIC FOR THE LARGER AREAS.

Rub off the masking fluid - dont worry if it looks a mess - using a small brush will soon start to pick up the details.

Pick out the browner tones of the monkey with masking fluid and paint in the foliage with more detail of the leaves using a small sixe brush and the mix of cobalt blue/sap green.

Use liquidex flow aid with your acrylic paint when painting in detail as good for thining and not so fast drying
