Bath Time

Today was another hot 87F (30.6C) and humid 103F (39.4C) day and also the first meeting of the Buckhorn Tuesday Painting Group.

I decided that I was going to complete this painting of the rubber duck complete with a towel, bath oil and bars of soap that I have been working on for quite some time (see posts on 11 and 16 July and 28 December 2014, 21 January, 08 February, 24 May, 23 July and 17 August 2015).

One of the first things I had to do was fix the bottom of the bath oil bottle. I mixed up a dark blue and removed the little bubbles at the base of the bath oil by putting in a shadow.

Now it was time to finish the sea shell container that held the bars of soap.

The inside of the shell was various mixes of greys made from French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

For the outside of the shell, the markings were painted with pure burnt sienna and the shadows with more of the grey mix but more to the brown tones.

This original 6-1/2" x 11” watercolour painting when framed will be available for $175.00.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
