Day 48

Mission del Bac – Day 2 (first glazing)

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.
