5. Design Secrets– dividing the paper into thirds, not halves. Planningahead… Loosely or tightly planning, but do plan. Don’t despair overaccidents or mistakes…some accidental designs are the best designs.Most mistakes can be fixed..it’s all part of the process of learning.Contrast- background to main subject – (background dark, subjectlight or vice versa) contrast between background and subject ( yellowon blue , or orange on green) using black and white lines or outlinesfor contrast.Sizes and quatities of subjects – things in threes, different sizes – mama, daddy and baby. , things in twos – one large, one smaller, onething – large enough to fill the space. See the Project samples on BlogChoose a main star subject and then choose accents – can’t have 5main stars all the same size or 10 accents all the same size.Lines – horizontal, vertical and diagonal or wavy---have a nice mixture of all….remember in nature very few things areperfectly straight.Draw a sample of a :horizontal linewavy linevertical linediagonal line6. Techniques for success….Rinse your brush between using different colors of paint. Don’t mixpaints on the brush or in the cups.Always use your paper towel to dry excess water off brush.Pay attention and follow directions.Focus on each step to completion and try not to waste time.Each step has to be completed in a certain time frame.Tissue paper is thin and has to be painted very carefully – try to useas dry a brush as possible, very gently, put down only one coat of paint in one direction, once you put down the paint, don’t go back over it or the tissue paper will tear. Put down different colors next toeachother to make it interesting and let them bleed together on thepaper. This paper needs to dry quickly so the less paint the better.Just put down paint and try to leave it alone, beginners have the habitof “overworking” their art….usually less and simple is better thanmore and complicated. When gluing the paper to the canvas, use alight coat of glue and wipe off the excess. Trust that once you finish,everything will work together nicely as a whole.7. Special Effects: using special acrylic or other mediums such as
glossy medium for a glossy finish, glass bead gel for a sandy textureon the sand, wadding up the tissue paper before you paint it for awrinkly look and texture, using textures such as netting or sponges toapply paint for a special looking pattern, using your brush in a specialway to create an effect, such as waving the brush up and down in awavy line to paint the waves in the water.8. Accent lines : outlining with black or white paint pens, adding dots,stripes or wavy lines, adding special parts like eyes, gills or fins.Scales.
