HOW TO USE TRANSPARENT VS OPAQUE IN A PAINTING:
"There are many ways to apply paint to create visual excitement. One way is a transparent-opaque approach. This type of application is not new. Rembrandt worked with thin transparent and translucent areas against opaque applications to create form". Color Choices by Steven Quiller.
I put down a Dioxazine Purple (transparent) as an underpainting, let it dry then added opaque Cad. Red and Cad. Yellow in a horizontal line. After watching several You Tube videos I went back and added a diluted purple line, an out of the tube purple line and lastly purple mixed with white(opaque).
RESULTS: I learned:
* All paints can be transparent if enough water is added enough.
* Adding white makes any color opaque.
* Glazing with transparent colors gives a sparkle to the painting.
* Use transparent paints as the foundation of the painting.
**Transparent colors recede and opaque advance an object which adds depth to a painting.
**This little bit of information is the secret!!
