Lesson 8 of 9
In Progress

Working on the rocks

Having established the broad outlines of the rocks I am now in a position to refine and add detail to the rocks. With a combination of my fingers and chisel shaped blenders (see left) I am able to define the fissures and cracks in the rocks and highlight the loose pebbles linking the two outcrops. Despite this I want to retain the solidity of the formations and leave an impasto effect similar to that obtained by thick oil paints.
