Meringues Painting Study: A Delicious Tutorial feat. Wayne Thiebaud
Step 12: Finishing Up This Sweet Painting
In this last step, use more of your blue mix for details, then more of the light purple mix for the third pie on the top row. Stay aware of your painting’s warm vs cool, and light vs dark contrasts. The balance of these contrasts will help define a painting, and make it more dramatic like Thiebaud’s Meringues. Keep stepping back to check your overall progress, and to see what needs changing and/or fixing.
You’re done when you can’t think of anything else to do, so as a final touch, use a no. 1 rigger brush to sign your painting at the top in a light Turquoise Blue. Remember to credit the original artist! You can use a hairdryer, or let the paint dry by itself while cleaning up. Hope you’ve learned a lot from this meringues painting study, and enjoyed the process and result!
