It's amazing what a last glaze can do to a painting:thumbsup:

Wow Garry, Marianne's right. A big difference. I'm used to watercolor glazes and those differences are a lot more subtle. Nice work!

Marianne , Laura.
I'm having lots of fun playing with limited a palette to see what I can achieve.
Its so tempting to grab that extra tube of paint.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

I am a little confused with your glazing. In your original statement you said you used, "Colours Used: Titanium White, Ivory Black, Sap Green, Indian Yellow.", Yet the painting appears blue ...where did that come from? Was it the photo that made it look so blue or did your glazing create that big of a difference? If so, what did you glaze with to create that much of a difference?

Oh the last glaze made a huge difference. :) Beautiful.

The blue seen on the painting, is from the sky ourside my studio window,
reflected onto the wet paint.
The last photo was taken at night on my easel, in the same location, using colour corrected indoor lights.

Lovely form to the Rose - good example of glazing too.
