Painting Update: Filing Her Nails

July 19, 2016

Playing around with the new painting, adding some more modeling to her dress.


The brand of oil I’m using is Le Franc (orange and red ochre,) which is a little more oily than some other brands. That helps me keep loose brush strokes, and easier to remove paint to the lighter value beneath for the highlights on the dress without adding more medium. I’m also using a Winsor & Newton Naples Yellow to dull down the orange some.
