"Another Nail in My Heart" oil on panel 8"x20"
Galkyd medium mixed with burnt umber paint applied with a rag.
Drawing done with burnt umber paint and a sable brush. I wiped out the lights with a rag and some paint thinner.
Galkyd and thin washy layer of main colors and values. Then I let it tack up or dry just a bit. Galkyd medium speeds the drying and makes a nice stable underpainting.
Thicker layers of paint and then working out subtle stuff with some sable brushes.
The finished painting.
