Yesterday, I completed the first glaze layer of color on the last flower petal, and later, I applied the first glaze layer of color to the background.

This is the result of yesterday's effort:


Please realize that I have corrected this in Photoshop a bit, but only to make it appear as my actual first glaze of color on my painting. There is still evidence of the grisaille underpainting showing through. The grisaille performs well as my "value map", indicating to me just where to place my darks, and lights, when glazing color.

Re: Pitcher With Flowers

After a several more glaze layers of color. I'm actually using the same Torrit Gray by Gamblin for the background color, into which I'm mixing some Burnt Umber, and Raw Sienna for a degree of "warmth".

At this time, I'm a "dipper", meaning that instead of rubbing medium onto my dried surface, I dip a bit out of my medium cup using the tip of my brush. I then mix it with my paint on the palette before applying it.

The painting is a bit warmer than the photo shows. I've modified the photo toward that warmer color bias in Photoshop, but I cannot get it to update when I post it here, for some reason.

Nevermind......this is NOW a rather accurate representation of my painting. I just renamed it when I saved it out of Photoshop, and this site picked up on my NEW image!

Re: Pitcher With Flowers

Even with the color bias it looks fantastic, Bill. Love that shine on the porcelain

Thank you. Check it out once more.....I was able to include the correction that brought it into a more accurate-appearing image.

Re: Pitcher With Flowers

This is a lovely painting
It could be a primer on composition, value, temperature and hue.

Re: Pitcher With Flowers

Great work Bill. One of the things I wish more students of layered techniques would notice is that the underpainting is not a full value range. Anyone looking to improve their layering techniques would greatly benefit from looking at your work in progress images.

Yes, that is very correct, regarding the underpainting not being full-range. I try to make it a great deal LIGHTER, and FLATTER (less range) in general, than the final color version.

In fact, I usually experience a great difficulty keeping my grisaille of a light enough value. That is a very difficult task. The goal is to have the shadows be just a bit lighter than those desired in the final painting, so as to "make room" for the subsequent glazes of color.

However, even if the grisaille ends up being a bit too dark in value, that actually CAN be corrected during the subsequent glazes of color. There is nothing wrong with including White paint in the glaze layers. I do that all the time.
