i sure am taking my time about this painting. today i went down and made up some very white blue paint and spread it over the sky reflections i’ve already put in. i was very careful, again, not to burn holes in the white paint, and it stuck together wonderfully. i anticipate putting a coat or two of pure wax on after this, and only then letting the dark burn thru.
but isn’t it pasty, and can you think it’s surface reflections? i don’t know yet. it keeps getting further from what i was envisioning. i could end up scraping and otherwise attacking the surface if all else fails. stay tuned.
