Flemish oil technique stage 5

Oil on MDF - 10 x 10 inches

So, after a long time to dry, I came back on this beautiful composition for the first color layer. You have to work with more boiled linseed oil but not too more. Boiled linseed oil turned yellow less in the time. Layers must be thick for the clear parts and dense in colors for the dark parts. For example, the black bottom of this layer is more charged in ultramarine hell than my habits for this layer. For other parts, don't forget to work with transparency, it's better. An example here is the pages of the book. At the beginning, we are afraid of charging in colors then the picture can seem mat. With the second layer of colors, all will be better. ;-)
