Meringues Painting Study: A Delicious Tutorial feat. Wayne Thiebaud
Step 7: Strengthening And Deepening Colors
Keep layering brighter and more saturated colors for depth and contrast, especially in the pies’ details. You can use Turquoise and Cobalt Blue, switching between the two so the same blue isn’t found in every pie. Strengthen the shadows with the blue, then the red mixture, and layer more Brilliant Orange in the orange areas.
Layer matching colors in your meringues painting study, so a stronger green in the greens, a stronger yellow in the yellows, etc. Try to put yourself in Thiebaud’s shoes! And jump around from wet to dry areas so that your paper doesn’t get too saturated. If it does, you can use a wet lifting technique with a rag or a “thirsty brush“.
