Only a sample – there are principles but there are
A painting done in just one layer
Layering paint so that the bottom layers show through
using the tip of the brush to apply dots of color
Applying very thick paint so that the brushstroke actually leaves a trail in the paint and these trails create texture and shadow.
Applying thin coats of paints on top of each other
Putting on a layer of paint and then scratching back through it to reveal the paint underneath
Using an almost empty brush to apply the color
Putting layers of lighter color over layers of darker colors
Blending the paint in a naturalistic way
Whether realistic or abstract
Putting down a thin layer of color before painting thicker layers on top of it
Highlights and details are gradually added. Note the colors are in contrast to what the final colors will be.
Color is gradually added and modeled in both thick and thin layers until the final result is achieved.
