Bluebell Woods


So here is the finished painting of Bluebell woods following on from yesterdays blog when I described how I started and built up the layers. Working light to dark can be done in oil paints as shown above but it takes a good deal of care in mixing the right mixture of turpentine and linseed oil in each layer. I wanted to do it this way to get the effect of the light in the painting. This method can be very quick particularly if you leave out any drafting of the scene.
