Hi Lisa, Thanks for the compliment on the painting Lilly Bell. She's my daughter's Aussie shepard. She's a smart and friendly dog. To answer you question about what is a blue vail. The process that Lilly Bell is done with is one that is used for centuries. It uses a technique of painting from dark to light. First step is the draw the image on the canvas as a line drawing using a permant marker or paint that outlines the shape and doesn't inclue any values (shading). Next step is to glaze a transparent color over the line drawing so that the image bleeds though. This is the vail that I mentioned and it can be any dark color blue, green, or brown, so long as its dark. Then build values with white paint working from dark to light. THe white paint can be made more transparent by thinning. Then glaze transparent colors on top of the white and the remaining vail. Finally, use color with white paint mixed in to create opaqe highlights. It all takes a lot of practice, but its the only way I like to paint acrylics or oils.
