Meringues Painting Study: A Delicious Tutorial feat. Wayne Thiebaud
Step 3: Adding Lighter Colors In This Meringues Painting Study
Switch to Gamboge Nova, and drop it where you see yellow or orange in the reference photo. Remember not to add to all of the cakes, as this will make them look too similar! You can switch to Cadmium Lemon Yellow or Brilliant Orange for variation, although you may want to tone down the orange with Alizarin if needed.
Next, mix Chromium Green Oxide with Olive Green, and add to a few of the top row of pies. Change back to Alizarin Crimson to paint on top of some of the pink pie layers, and wherever it’s needed. You can also use Pyrrole Red for a stronger red color in some parts of your meringues painting study. In addition, note that watercolor paint always dries lighter than when it’s wet, so don’t worry if the color looks too dark at first.
