The wall is finished. Cymas were installed and there are only little things to be tidied up so that the studio is first-class. Strawberries are now ended and 2 new dead-layers were painted today. Now, a shower, a small dinner and in the bed !! ;-)
When the wall will have been completely redone, I shall install the cymas wihich will allow me to suspend full of paintings as in a professional gallery. Like this, it will be easier and more pleasant for working. ^^
The website has been updated today. It was for me, the occasion to show the 4 more important phases of the Flemish technique with this picture. After an under-layer comes the dead layer, the first pass of colors and the final touch.
Alone at home from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, I begin this day with the under-layer of this new composition with Bleu, olives and glass of wine. The composition is simple, well balanced and colors will be pleasant. Now, I have a dead layer to do on another piece. ^^
After a first step for the drawing covered by a thin layer of yellow ochre, I worked this morning on the under-layer. For the next step, I will work the dead layer with a palette of yellow ochre and black better known as "Verdaccio".
