THE ARCTIC BEAR IS BACK, STEP BY STEP

By   /   September 9, 2009  /   Comments

Artist Jean Weiner says early feedback indicates that her recently completed watercolor celebrating Albany’s historic-but-defunct diner at Oglethorpe and Slappey boulevards is going to be a hot commodity.

“Keep in mind,” she says, describing her artwork’s progression, that “whites are actually the white of paper (and) light colors are applied first and darks are built on top of several layers.”

Of her eight steps, here are four:

Step 1: Transfer line sketch to watercolor paper.

Step 4: Start on all that itty bitty drive in lettering. Anyone for an icey cold Coca Cola? Apply masking fluid to the foreground cars and people to save the white paper.

Step 6: Build stronger foreground color values.

Step 8: Finish painting the cars and people. Spray the left and right lower margins with blue to bring the focus back to the light radiating from the drive in windows. Sign!
