ALLA PRIMA --- Having some teething problems. In the past, I would paint knowing I could paint over the top of it the next day when the paint was touch-dry. But I am trying to copy Mark’s style of painting, which is to carefully check values, colors and to paint the finished version in one go. However, when I did this with a portion of Lucia’s hair, I felt that the hair looked stilted and the darks were too dark. So I decided to paint loosely over this and the rest of the hair with the expectation that I could paint the highlights over the top. However, painting highlights on wet paint is not the same as painting highlights on dry paint and I am worried I won’t be able to do it. Do other people have these same teething problems with wet-on-wet? Have I just ruined a perfectly good piece of work that only needed some minor adjustments. And a consequence, of course, I’ve lost the underlying drawing.
