Newspaper Rock WIP

This is the first WIP I am submitting of the earlier smaller study of Newspaper Rock. I am four hours into this full sheet painting, including three glazes of the yellow ochre and three hours of painting the glyphs with masking fluid. I am using Pebeo Drawing Gum for masking and it is a gray color when dry, the masking will be removed once I glaze on all the rock colors, leaving the ochre colored glyphs.

Seeing as there is a Vanguard Artists meeting this afternoon at the museum and a weekend ArtChix sale, I will probably not do anything with this for a few days. Once I start glazing the rock colors, it usually goes fairly rapidly from that point.

Have a good weekend, all!

This is an impressive undertaking, Susan! I know it will be a stunner when you've finished so just take your time and we'll try to be patient :)
