Beginning The Blue Notes

Posted by Gayle Levee, 02 December 2010 · 289 views

We've got musicians on this forum, and a term they use is "blue notes." Visual artists use the word "notes" to refer to colors, and in this case I am indeed using blue notes. The warm underpainting dried nicely yesterday, and now I have started to add those cool, blue notes to the composition. 

These two photos show the blue beginning to cover the sky. The closeup shows how I did not completely cover the pink, and I am not being neat about the edges between the sky and the clouds. This is very important for you to note. One thing which can ruin an otherwise beautiful painting is edges which are too neat.
