2 Ways, 1 Mission: A Historical Watercolor Painting Of Mission San Juan
Step 10: Figures Under The Arch
Use Cobalt Green to touch up the foliage, and then paint the people standing under the archway using any colors you want. Bill uses Permanent Carmine, Cobalt Blue, and Ivory Black for different parts of the clothing, and Yellow Ochre for the skin and head. If the colors get too dark, you can do some wet lifting using a dry, “thirsty brush“. When the paint is dry, you can also add highlights by dotting in a very saturated Chinese White using a no. 2 round brush.
