|Solid colour Scorpion Green.|
|After basing grab your thin paint brush. Here I used size 5/0.|
Here's an example of checker patterns with more contrasting colours for a better idea of what to do and better what not to do.
|Thought about doing black and white but figured red would be a better. Start with your grid.|
|Everything is blocked in except the blatant mistake.|
|As we know the reason why checker patterns work is because the tips of
the adject colour get very close to each other but never touch.|
|Unless you've done this A Lot or are extremely prepared you will be going back to cover up the second colour.|
|On this episode of "being arrogant and thinking I could handle it with a wet brush." Yep, this is what I get for going to fast and not slowing down. Blob of white on red. Now to clean that up.|
|Based Surf Aqua.|
|Hawk Turquoise lines.|
|Scorpion Green for other half.|
|After filling the checker/diamond pattern the Hawk Turquoise wasn't standing out as much as I wanted. Decided to use Flash Gitz Yellow as lines.|
Hopefully this has been helpful.
