Beautiful!

I second the request for more information for your process?

Which oil paints do you use?
What surface did you paint on?

Thanks!

I paint on linen oil, pinen and dammar varnish. On a canvas. The most part of paints is made in Russia.

I will talk about the process later.

Here are other my works:http://artnow.ru/en/gallery/206/4547/picture/0.html

7. Finishing of the first color layer. Completion of details.


It is difficult to tell how many here layers because here it is a lot of transparent layers on different places.

This not so successful a photo. I have made many translucent layers.
I has painted with red their palms, fingers, heels, noses, ears, elbows and the most beautiful parts of a body.
Then i has painted cold parts of a body,
- Reflection on objects from the grass, the fabric, the grounds and the sky.
- Patches of light on hair,
- The light appears through fingers.
Has finished painting an arrow.

10. Feel a difference.


Here especially well it is visible fingers.
In a picture not such is bright-blue wings, as on a photo. They almost white, with an easy blue and violet cold shade. As there are easy reflections of wings on a back, hair. Nostrils too should appear through pink.
Now the picture dries before a covering a varnish.
I Hope, it was interesting to you.

I loved seeing this process, Olga. Thank you for sharing it. You have mastered this layering technique and the painting you have now is a treasure! Nora
