Terry Chipp demonstration
Demonstration by Terry Chipp of a Venice street in acrylic paint on board.
Terry had already sketched the scene in pencil, pasted over with gesso at varying thicknesses, then gouged the partly hidden lines to reveal them and make shallow grooves and ridges along with added marks to supplement the textures.
Terry wet the gesso surface to aid paint spreading and applied undiluted ultramarine blue and red with kitchen paper to the sky and central area..
Then he applied a brown mixture to the remainder so that all the white was covered.
After wiping off paint with dry kitchen paper to reveal some of the drawing, Terry then revealed more white around the light with wet kitchen paper.
Terry painted dark edges to the bridge and to buildings and some light brown and light yellow to areas in the lamp light.
Mid tones applied to background
