Cordoba Cafe Pour #3
For my third pour, I masked out my next value by following my black and white photo. These values are more midtone since I am at the midpoint of my pours. The paint was made into a liquid only I made it slightly more concentrated than the last time. I rewet the paper and poured again. I also use a medicine dropper to drop in the paint where I want it to go, such as yellow and blue on the left for the green palm trees.
I had completely forgotten to photograph the 3rd pour. Thank goodness my daughter had it on her camera. She is videotaping the process for me. If it turns out, I will post it.
Cordoba Cafe Pour #4
I was so anxious to pour again that I started to mask before I took the photo after the fourth pour! The painting is starting to take shape.
Just one more pour!! Then the big reveal.
