Male1: Working over my turquoise background is very scumbled. I actually done this background with a, with a bristled brush, and I’m still using the bristle, but I’m gonna start right now creating a basic shape of things, block it in and so to speak. So I’m gonna start with a little yellow and a tiny bit of red, and you’ll see me scumbling in tone. It’s little exaggerated, but this gets me started. I can position, I like this, I like to design angular, you’ll see that I, it’s kind of a trademark I might say. Because I, I think it gives you more power as oppose to very sweet little shapes. And back, notice how I put the red in there into the yellow, get kind of orangey effects got here. This is just the, again as part of the under painting. There’s no point in doodling a lot of detail to soon, because you’re gonna, you’re gonna be changing it. Male2: What are you trying to do right now in the painting? Male1: Well I have the basic composition, now I’m going for the secondary shapes. I’m getting ready to be working on some of the detailing of the, the ship. But basically, I’m not locking in too much. I maybe putting the sails, I may move them a little bit to the left or to the right. I wanna get a feel for this painting. Male2: What color are you using? Male1: Right now I’m using some Maple yellow, and a touch of white. So it’s a little lighten up the Maples more. I think it’s extremely important to force ones self not to be lock into a particular part of the painting. Because if you do that, if you do that, your painting gets tight and boring.
