Today's Daily Art - Butterfly (Oil painting in progress)

Oil Painting: I usually don’t like to show my paintings until they are done but I thought it may be interesting to show the progression of this one. The photo of this is not great but I am doing a traditional glaze painting in oil. You start with a detailed gray monochrome which is what you see here. Then, after it dries there are many applications of transparent colors that get fatter each layer, meaning; more dammar varnish and linseed oil, less paint thinner. This will give the painting a glossy rich color. The painting will take a couple of weeks and I will post the result. See “Butterfly” iPhone painting on previous blog post for an idea of where this painting is going.

See it…Draw it…Post it… I love it!!!
