Very nice! I too am a fan of Goldens acrylic glazing medium.

Paint for fun...the rest will follow!

Wonderful finish. I love the silky feel of the petals and edges.

Re: Pink Rose Bud WIP

the second one is better. and yes golden paint is good at times. sometime you do need faster drying times. I just saying about the comment on open golden paint. i have some ands it good but i find if i just spay a little mist of water on any paint the drying time is good for me then.

Re: Pink Rose Bud WIP


I have to thank you for the tip on the use of the glazing liquid. As luck had it I had some in my array of materials purchased no doubt when I started painting from a "recommended list" of items in a book, but never touched because I didn't have a clue...

I have been using it to work on a painting for this month's Different Strokes, and I think it has made a big difference in lifting the sky and water reflections from 'blobs of colour' towards 'blends of colour'.

Thank you Fullback, Eric, Kathie, Susan, Ruthie, Derek, Jocko, and Howard for your kind comments! I appreciate your viewing this and taking the time to comment. It is very encouraging.

Colin, I'm glad you found Golden glazing liquid a big help. I know just what you mean about making blends of color out of blobs. I look forward to seeing your painting too.

Re: Pink Rose Bud WIP

Just got back to this thread Judy - and I do like the changes

It's also an informative thread for those who may need to know about glazing - I only use water but after your's and Colin's comments I'm tempted to find some Golden!
Cheers, Maureen

Re: Pink Rose Bud WIP

Judy...do you use extender and a mop? I lightly coat the surface with extender or retarder and then use a mop to make transitions even smoother....your tarnsistions look great but I think you could get even softer with a mop
