"Orchids in Ruby Glass" Oil 12 x 12" WIP.
I have my own reasons why I had to put my pastel painting on hold... just temporarily and start this oil painting Instead. Same picture, different medium. More slow process and more time to think about it all. I'm working on Ampersand 12x12 Gessobord with no other primers, but factory gesso (what I love, BTW!). Beginning stage will be total gray scale. no color, just value underpainting. I'm continue to use my DUO Oils with some Liquin. Not much done for one day, but what done is done. The hardest part about this painting will be to keep those Oil Pastels in the box. This has to be an Oil. Not an Oil Pastel!... (Temptations, temptations!..)
