I’m having some fun and thought I’d share.

1st you put on a layer of Marble Medium – using the knife you smooth it out like icing a cake.  The next step is to block out the image you are working on, adding more medium where you want and taking it away in others.  It is like a shallow relief sculpture.  When dry this medium is quite matte.

This medium is not too attractive and I painted it when it was dry.  Using dry brush you can layer the paint almost immediately with a light touch of one colour over another.  I like to work from dark to light.

Eventually I put my painting on my easel.  I think it is important to walk back and forth to assess the colours and shapes. Because this piece was small I could work on it on the table for quite a while.  It isn’t finished but you can see it will be soon.

Once more I am working from a photo from the website –  Paint My Photo.
