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. ;-)

My paintings on the Move

This Monday, it has left my studio to be installed in a very pleasant home in Australia. ^^

In the same time, this little gem is now in the house of a pretty princess with her 2 cats in Washington. Everywhere Post works, you may receive one of my paintings. ;-)

Lemons and leaves

Waooh !! I was very happy to have on-lined this large piece that it was immediately sold. So this pleasant composition was sent the same day to the United Kingdom. ^^

In the same time, I continue to work on paintings for my YouTube film. I think it will be pleasant. ^^

Large pieces

Several large pieces are in progress in my small studio. It's very strange to take suddenly a brush n°.12 when I'm so used to paint with n°.0 ! :-)

You will be able to follow this pleasant and intimist piece. I prefer to reserve the others to make you a surprise when they will be finished. ^^
