Flemish oil technique stage 1

Oil on MDF - 10 x 10 inches

You were several to ask me how to work like Flemish masters of the 15-16th century. So, I choose this pleasant composition to explain the different steps. I have to write here that I'm not an art teacher and I'm sure that you will be able to find a better teacher than me, because my English is purely horrible. ^^

I prepare my support first. I gessoed it 8 times. 4 layers and I sand. I do it twice.

It's time to draw your composition. Very Important Thing : don't forget to ink your drawing because when you will paint your first under layer with turpentine and ochre, the graphite will disappear. Below, this is the result. Generally, this layer dries very fast.

The first layer with ochre and turpentine.
