Topics Covered:

  • Painting in layers and making sure they're mostly dry in between, taking into consideration environment and humidity affecting the drying time. 
  • Keeping highlights soft and being careful to not paint over them.
  • Painting shadows in multiple layers and keeping to the top edge where the cast shadow is strongest.
  • Preserving white/lighter areas on paper in order to achieve high contrast for detail work.
