    At what point will you apply some desaturated and shadow tones to the decorations? Maybe it’s the photos but they look floated on the background fabric.

    Hi ,


    Nearly all the way Martin great perseverance ...you will deserve a large drink I think !!

    Grasshopper makes a good point will you put highs and shadows on the pattern to blend it in more with the material ?

    Following as always

    Shadows will come with oils. Highlights IMHO not necessary...

    On December 7th of last year I started with the "cucumber pattern" of "Aksinja's" scarf, today - after almost eight weeks - I finally finished it!

    Today I shaded the pattern!

    I've never done anything like that, so I figured it out:

    Working in the shadows with a suitable dark color and fading to the lights ever thinner - only gray is all theory!

    And then - just in time! - a good friend of mine pointed out that really good painters like Bill Horan also recommend dealing like this with such patterns!

    That convinced me to try it that way!

    As a "suitable dark color" I have chosen "Payne's Gray" ...:

    [IMG]

    On the tube is indeed written "Grey", but actually comes the stuff almost black to light. And the more you dilute it, the more a sting will turn into violet!

    [IMG]


    The ideal shade color for a dark red area!

    Nevertheless:

    When I put the first swab of that "Payne's Gray" right in the middle of one of my laboriously painted "cucumbers", so to speak, in my mind's eye, all my figure painters life passed me by ...

    I then worked around the figure quickly - where the shadows come exactly is already defined in the dark red area.

    And you can very well modulate the depth of each shadow by thin and very thin color jobs of the "Payne's Grey" and the intensity of the Verbendung!

    This is how the finished painted part of the scarf looks like now ...:

    I'm satisfied with the results!

    The whole thing now looks "like a piece of cake", the pattern does not "pop" anymore and the overall impression is altogether calmer and more balanced than before!

    Will you slightly highlight as well ?

    Nope - it stays that way now. I think more would be too much ...

    The Payne’s grey is the difference..could do even more so the rose became more highlight and base..but it’s done and ready to move forward as you say

    The edge (or hem) of "Aksinja's" scarf has got its oil paint!

    Herewith...:

    Unfortunately, the fresh color still glazes very much ...:

    When color is taken into account that the seam will be even darker by the final shading of the pattern with a red-brown tone ...


    The whole thing may now dry for two days, then I will start with the pattern.

    Totally forgotten!

    That's what the finished scarf will look like - the colors will not "bite" each other...!
