Viridian Green

Today I put a coat of Viridian Green glaze on and remembered how hard it is to allow the previous layer to dry even in the hot weather, you still have to wait.

And I cleaned up all the studies from the Wilshire Normandie boxes. I really like them as a group but will sell them individually. Give me call if you are interested.

Glaze Paintings

Once in a while I teach glaze painting teachiques. It is a lengthly process. And I thought I would so one just so I know what I'm talking about. I set up a still life with a strong light source. Then I did my underpainting in burnt sienna really concentrating on getting as much detail and accuracy as possible. Correct value is particularly critical. I'll add photos after each later of glaze.

I let the underpainting dry then applied the first layer of ultramarine blue. I'm putting it on thinner in the dark lights and not at all in the very light lights.
