As mentioned before, I am very interested in glazing with oils, originally from studying old paintings like vermeer and I have a plan to learn how to achieve something similar in the new year, may even be my New Year's Resolution - we'll see. Anyway, I cam across a good glazing guide in Artists and Illustrators, one of my favourite art magazines, how advertised Artlimousin last year for me. The web address below is well worth a visit. I love the idea that a transparent galze affects the way we see the original colour of a painting. I read a book about an art forgery where the original painter was Degas and apparently he used loads of layers to achieve the colours in his work.
Daily life. I am using Linseed oil to make beautiful a toybox for our newest grandson - see picture. Also, I have entered the SAA postcard competition - get those entries in if you want to enter as it closes at end of December. Its a simple but great idea. You paint half and ask a painting partner to paint the other half. I have done one with Paul and one with Lynn, thank you to them both - great fun. If you want a go visit community.saa.co.uk and search for postcard partners.
