Number 4 (c) - To speed up the process, I decided to use a hairdryer and this worked very well. I was really happy with the process and how the green actually turned out and mixed with the sky. It was no big deal that it messed up. I think that it really adds to the movement effect of the whole piece.

Number 4 (b) - After leaving it to dry yet again, I decided to dip a thick brush into a tiny bit of titanium white paint and really watered it down and painted it right over the top of the painting. At this point, I had became frustrated as the top of the tree was not completely dry and it had now mixed with the white paint and went onto the sky part of the painting. After thinking for a while, I decided that if it needed to be fixed then I could do it no bother after it was dried.

Number 4 (a) - At this point, after waiting for everything to dry off, I decided to start adding in the fine details with the small strokes of process yellow on the foreground and strokes of yellow ochre and white to the tree trunks. I wasn't sure at all if this was the right move or not, but it worked out well in the end.

The Final Outcome (b) - I really loved creating this inspired piece so much, it turned out so well and you can easily see the brushstrokes. Overall, I would  do this again in a heartbeat as I loved this piece in it's whole entirety.

The Final Outcome (a) -  I've really enjoyed the experience of working with Eardley's techniques and I like the outcome of how this piece looks. I can understand the difficulty that Eardley faced during the creation process of her piece and I respect her admiration for her work and I can now understand that the work of an artist is quite hard and it's not easy to come up with a piece from the start which I can relate to from coming up with my own personal piece.

Number 3 (b) - I loved the scumbling technique so much in my Exploratory Painting class, that I decided that it would be something perfect to add in and it would help me achieve the light areas that I needed.

Number 3 (a) - After the paint had dried, I went into further detail with the light green on the trees by mixing more of the process yellow in with the emerald green and titanium white just so that I could get the green just right. This worked perfectly and at this moment, I felt so positive about this piece and felt like nothing could go wrong with it. I decided to go on and do a bit of scumbling the titanium white paint so that I could lighten the background further.

Number 2 (b) -  I really enjoyed dabbing the paint onto the paper and not necessarily having to care that much about the outcome as Eardley's pieces are all about movement and expression. At this point, I was fairly excited to see the final outcome. Again, I had to leave this to dry for a while before I could continue with it.

Number 2 (a) - After leaving the blue background to dry for a while, I decided to start roughly painting out the tree trunks and branches using burnt sienna and crated the leaves and bushes by mixing emerald green, titanium white and process yellow.

Number 1 (b) - I mixed ultramarine and titanium white acrylic paint with salt for the overall base of the painting, adding more white for the light spots of the background. This process took quite a while to dry, so I decided to leave it and go on with some of my other projects.
