This is my first “real” oil painting, and my first time exploring with glazing of any kind. I think I’m going to like it, once I get a hang of the paint/linseed/turpentine ratios. Actually, I’m using mineral spirits and don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing. So far, I’m not sensing in problems, so I’m hoping it’s all good.
Note: The background is not as blotchy as it appears here. It’s a result of table lamp/flash glare. I’m really quite pleased with it in real life.
