Oil on gessoed board
December 24, 26, 06
I painted this one on christmas eve. I wasn't that happy with it and on looking at it today I decided to repaint it. The paint had dryed and it's always different painting over another layer of paint. You lose something of the freshness and immediacy of the allaprima, however you gain something else. Transparent layers and glazes of paint produce a glowing richness.
