Kiwi in temepra and oil. X-post from Still Life.

Hello, everybody!... I'm not posting very often this year, because most of my projects are taking long time to finish.
This was my latest project, something totally new for me. I decided to try with so called "mische technique", what is combination of tempera/oil painting, when layers of paint go in specific order... I have never done it before this way, even I used tempera and oils together and some of my works.
The most complicated part was not too put too much of this of that medium, so two paints dish different characteristics will work with each other.
I had a very hard time on beginning, but it was only getting easier with every new paint application and when i was in the middle of this art work it became real fun.
For the first try of something totally new, I'm very pleased with end result, but I know that next time, it will be much easier - I learned from my own mistakes.
Mean while I want to share it with everyone... C&C are welcome.



Stage one: Ink on Claybord with small brush and some water.


Finished ink version. I not only did outlines, but put down most of my shadows.


First glaze of oil. Applied by hand.. and with way too much of medium, what made my next step very complicated.



I'm starting working with white tempera over oil. very little water, almost dry-brushing. I'm using Sennelier factory paint, but at places when I overdid it with oil medium, I have to use home-made paint with mode egg in it compare to factory paint. This lets me to work over mistakes of first oil application.



Finished first layer of tempera. My red is mu dark and tempera is for highlights on it... somewhat self-explanatory.



Yellow glaze of oil over first layer of tempera.


Back to more white highlights and some corrections to original painting... always some corrections.



Same stages again repeated with blue glaze of oil. Shadows by now should be represented by combination of 3 primary color and some-what createing illusion of optical grays.


First layer of local color in oil... mostly finished.


Local color is mostly finished. last corrections with tempera over color.





Final version... Need to take better photo, need to let it dry and go over it with oil medium to have all tempera covered evenly. Then - dry and varnish. I just hope next one will be somewhat easier... It should be.

Thank You, Barbara!
Yes, it is complicated, but always wanted to try it and I'm not sorry that I did. It gives some very interesting effects and lot of advantages... The key to the painting - take it easy. To stay with the program I was working off and an on few smaller projects, while I was finishing this one.
