glazing:pastel and oil
For the past couple years I have been trying to find my way with glazing with oils. My oils before were always alla prima, even when big studio pieces. Recently have I intentionally tried to overlap the method from oil to pastel. The methods had been very separate in my repertoire for a long time. The painting above is a good example of the overlap.
This morning when I traveled out to the lake I planned in my head how to "glaze" the layers. I began with watercolor and tried to use sections and broad sweeps of glazes (light layers that cover more blanket like than marks). I saved the marks to the end and used them sparingly.
