Today I finished a second painting using the gloss gel technique taught by Cheng Khee Chee. This was entirely on my own and I forgot one important step. After you apply the gel to the illustration board Cheng Khee blots the wet gel with a damp sponge to flatten and smooth out the brush marks in the gel. This gives you nicer texture. Anyway I am happy with this painting. I always struggle with realistic paintings but I feel like I am learning and improving. Hope your team won today. Go Colts!
