Wild Water Lily photographed on hike to cliff Lakes ~ my current oil painting project
On Jan. 15th 2016~ I worked 5 more hours on this.
I am working in the kitchen area now where the wood stove is for warmth
I am starting to put a second layer of paint on the plant, that is oils.
This is my second painting session. I stretched this canvas myself to get the size I wanted. I gessoed it and put a layer of beige acrylic as a base. The dark background is oils, but the lily here is mostly acrylic which I washed in rather quickly. I am now starting to go over the acrylic with oils, for richness, depth and blending that can never done with acrylics. In the end I will also using glazing to try and get the reflection of the sky on the upper part of the picture.
|These are my paint colors for this project. Even though much is now dry, I can still figure out what colors I used to mix other colors, which is really helpful as time goes on. I will save this even though I start on a new pallet sheet.|
My Oil brushes...I think there is something many of us love about just looking
at containers of brushes, full of potential and filled with love
