Most of the painting is blocked in, and I can start working on details. I want to create a texture for the skin of the zeppelin. I first paint the zeppelin black. Over this I paint white gouache. While the gouache is still wet I place a piece of paper towel over the surface. I gently roll over the paper towel, and this will lift some of the paint and create a texture. If it doesn’t work the first time I try again. The texture of the paper towel creates a nice effect that I can use for the skin of the zeppelin. Details will be added over this to create the finished zeppelin.
