When you do the blend start from the white move to the blue then into the black area. You may have to wash the brush and do a final blend. 1. The under coat The first step is to create a blend down the canvas from dark grey to white. To do this squeeze Titanium White onto the canvas and spread a layer over the surface. While this is still wet add some dabs of Lamp Black into the top and dabs of Cerulean Blue into the middle. Use a large flat brush and horizontal strokes to blend the colours together. Once you are finished there should be a smooth transition from dark to light. 1

Use a number 11 palette knife and gently drag it over the paint so that only the tip picks up paint. You then gently apply the paint in dabs. Lay the Lamp Black dabs across the top and as you work down the canvas lay less dabs so that they peter out. Next move to the Phthalo Blue and follow this same process. Once the Pthalo is on you can apply the Deep Cyan, the Cerulean, finishing with the Titanium White. The Titanium White will occupy the bottom of the canvas. If you watch the accompanying video it is quite easy to understand this part of the project. 2
