"This is a lovely scene with great proportions and composition. I would love to see a little more of a teal colour going through the water where the light is coming down the beach to give more interest in the water and perhaps a wee  red flower…"

To Glaze or not To Glaze

Posted on February 5, 2010 at 9:22 1 Comment

For a while now I have been totally undecided as to what I prefer. I have been glazeing all over my dry Oil paintings with a very light liquin oil based medium. I find it intensifes the colours and evens out the overall look of the painting.

Diane Boucher- I'm new to this site , but did want to thank you for the nice comment about my watercolor Galveston,

Thanks for the comment about my WIP of the roses.  Yes, good paintings take time, and the Flemish method takes a lot of time, but I have never painted this way that I did not feel it was the best I had ever done.  Really enjoy the process a lot.  I will post the gray later when I finish that (WIP).  smile  Roena
