Painting the shadow, is a bit of a challenge, but very rewarding . Begin with painting in the shadow shape closest to the vase, paint one shadow at time. Paint in the dark gray, while it was wet I then painted in the yellow highlight, keeping enough moisture, in each shape. Clean your brush and gently add some clear water for the highlights for the shadow. Once you have completed this portion of the shadow keep moving and do not paint back into the areas you have just painted. Let it be and let the paint float. It is a tricky technique, controlling with out controlling the out come. Letting the paint float will give you clean results, and not an over worked shadow. Next I will paint the Murano Vase.
