Original Oil Painting Alexandra

Girl in a Straw Hat

12" x 12" 
Painted on gessobord.

I added the glazes on today! Glazing was on the shadows mostly giving them warmth and uniformity. I also darken the hair and shoulder on the right pushing it back into the shadows. A glaze is a little paint with lots of medium. I use walnut oil for my medium, less toxic than others. I use it to adjust colors when the paint is dry to the touch. The photo below is what it looked like before I glazed.


I am waiting for it to dry and to add glazing.
