WIP Drowning Panel EP1 – More layers and Q’s

0160

 

Skin tone wash after blue has dried. Forgot to mention that I masked out areas I want to stay pure white/paper texture white. Unfortunately, I had an idiot moment here and got a little sloppy.

This isn’t exciting enough of a post, so here’s the next one:

0161

Started laying in shadows in the skin. Another blue, purple, and red mix wash to the bottom wave with some salt effects. Honestly, deciding how to approach this one was kind of tricky…it’s mostly a blue picture, and how do you create depth without creating too much depth? What colours do I exclude? How do you separate the shapes clearly without falling into being too graphical? What should stay white (always the big question in watercolours)? Things I think about while I seem to stare into space.
