Still Life, oil on black gessoed panel, 6" x 6"
This was a gift for a friend's recent birthday. She has shown us so much kindness over many, many years and I just wanted to create a token of our friendship for her.
This time I used W&N Griffin alkyd oils. I use them from time to time and don't mind them. My first impression each time is that they are very thin and rather transparent but it just requires a few more layers to achieve more opacity in areas and, as they dry quickly, this is not a problem. Now and then it needed a little 'Liquin Fine Detail' to increase the flow so I had a couple of 'high' moments - LOL!
