I started this one the other day on the perfect, dry, sunny summer morning. I worked into it this morning in the studio and glazed over the background quite a bit with Galkyd medium mixed into prussian blue. I love glazing -got a little carried away but I like the effect.
FYI any of my painter pals - Michaels art store in Hanover ( actually probably all their locations) has 7 packs of 12"x12" canvases on sale for 14.99. I am not a huge fan of that store but thats a very good deal!
