I have been doing a lot of glazing with oils, something I haven't done in a while. The way it works is the light passes through several thin layers of oil color to the white canvas or panel, bounces back to the eye to create lush layered colors. The top painting is just in it's first phases, it's an oil on canvas. The ones under it are on panel. I am just thinking of them as backdrops right now. I'm now sure what the subjects will be for these paintings, I'm not sure if I will continue them in oils or switch to encaustic.
This is an old friend that I am "re imagining". I thought it could use a new sky. We'll see what happens.
