My first tip would be to plan on using a LOT of paper- it takes practice! Here's what I did last weekend- started around 6AM and finished around 10AM. Not too bad!
Look closely. These are three separate paintings. I did a trio to hang at home.
I'm learning there's less 'control' than you would think.
My new objective is to learn how to mix colors better- then lay them so they overlap like the blue and yellows below.
The theme was meant to be a striking green/ yellow effect and I think shows.
