Class Notes - July 7, 2010

  • Edges
    • First get edge contrast
    • Then get edge quality
  • Frustration
    • When you don't know, there's a tendency to rush
    • Better to see what you're doing wrong than to get it right
      • Requires slowing down
  • Ways to adjust edge quality
    • Brush it in correctly the first time (most difficult)
    • Mix intermediary tone and lay it in with a small brush
    • Lay down a sharp edge with wet paint on both sides of the edge, then soften with a clean, dry brush
      • For very soft edges, zig-zag across edge, then smooth
    • Scrape off with palette knife
    • Scumble over dry paint
  • Don't go too far along an edge without some change in edge quality
