So I went for painting Bert today, which involved several layers and waiting time in between. I started with a very bright green, then did a gradient towards the tips. Next was to make the middle very yellow (I used a florescent yellow). After that had dried, I taped down (painter's tape) some pieces of paper to cover up the yellow/bright green so I could do some red outlines. I laid down some florescent pink then red. I wadded up a newspaper and tried to mottle the colors a bit around the edges once the pieces of paper had been removed. Next involved a lot of switching from different colors, and blending back and forth, trying to make the pieces a little less clear cut. Lastly, I painted the back dk green (what I could reach) and closed up the garage to dry. I still need to go over with detail work, and the eyes and crown need some work.
Did a little sponge work. Mostly brightened up the spots and the red sections. Yes, he looks super bright, but I want him to look very eye catching under the black light, so I'm emphasizing the spots.
