Let´s start using some colour! I begin by paintingthe sky of the light bulb very thinly with Prussian green. Towards the edges of the bulb I apply a little more colour to have a clear structure. In the middle, I let the rest of the colour run out to have a mix of both tones. If the colour of the sky is stillslightly wet, I apply some white dots. For the sea in the foreground I use Indigo. For the lighthouse I use Cadmium red and Schmincke Payne´s grey. The grey tone was also used for the connecter of the light bulb.
In the next step I spread AQUA Collage into the desired lower image area as well as some torn newspaper snippets and brown cardboard onto it. A part of the horizon as well as the paper snippets, I paint over again with AQUA Collage. Then I slightly press the snippets and paint over them a second time. Again, it is very important that you do not paint the AQUA Collage over the masking fluid!
Time for details! The masking fluid can now carefully be removed by rubbing it with the index finger. If you want, you can set some more speckles in white and blue: For that, simply pick up some water and paint with the brush - give your creativity free run! With the acrylic pencils I paint even more details, for example grasses in black in the foreground or loose lines in white around the bulb.
