How TO PAINT BEAUTIFUL PAINTINGS THE EASY WAY-FLOURESCENT, NEON, & GLOW PAINTS
Here, we have the first layer, the shadows painted underneath : there is black irregular shadows on the mountains, irregular patchwork shadows on the trees (bottom of mountains) ; there are irregular patchwork shadows on the dirt hills ( left side and right side ) ; And there are shadows in the water ( bottom center ).
This layer must dry completely or it will mix with the next layer of paint and just make a muddy mess. And you will not have depth in your finished painting.
One of the main things in a beautiful painting is ;" LIGHT IN THE PAINTING ". And this problem of shadows underneath in very important. In the middle ages, artist used to start out with a black canvass instead of a white canvass. And NOW with the use of florescent paint, neon paint, and glow paint we will have light in the painting like never before . The FIRST layerto having "LIGHT IN THE PAINTING" is putting the shadows underneath.. The LAST layer is "FLOURESCENT PAINT " and "INVISIBLE PAINT" & "GLOW PAINT."
