Step 2: Using The “Wet-In-Wet” Technique

sunset-sky-step-2

Wet the sky with clean water and the cat’s tongue brush. You can brush over the palm trees, and wet the paper right up to the horizon line. While the paper is still wet, you can use the wet-in-wet technique by using the size 12 brush to pick up some Cadmium Yellow Light and Aureolin, then dropping the wet paint onto the wet paper. Start in the area above the horizon line, painting in horizontal strokes while making sure the brushstrokes aren’t too regular. Leave the sun unpainted so the paper stays white and it’s the brightest spot in the painting.
