painting at the rapids

another art tip from Y.A.A.

Mix enough paint with a pallet knife at home before you go out. Try to estimate the colors and values you will need. You can make adjustments outside, and it saves time if you don’t have to mix paint while the light changes.

Add in the gel medium so it stretches the paint and makes it more transparent for glazes.
