Madame Mouton 04 Jun 2020

I like the colours in this painting,, only the blue is perhaps too bright



Voy Kay Conqueror of Challenges

True, that hard blue is a little out of line with the sky colour but in all, another great painting Astrid!

Madame Mouton, it is nice, but I agree with you about blue being too bright.
If you will want to mute it down in the future let it dry for 2-3 weeks and glaze it with crimson or any other color you will like.

Good idea Sunnylady, I will do that! Thanks

If you find good glazing recipe please do share. I started learning glazes. It is something I do not understand yet. But I like the effects that can be achieved.

@Sunnylady, I was thinking of using the liquid clear and some transparent colour like Alyzaron , I think that will also work, right?

I am doing seascape now and it is a lot of glazing there. I used linseed oil as media and nothing else, but it is on absolutely dry previous layer. and then I used finger and a piece of old t-shirt to make it smooth and very-very thin. I don't know any other recipes, that's why i am asking.

You may add a drop of ochre to make it like orange and see what will happen. in Theory it should tone it down as orange and blue are complimentary colors. Or may be even ochre will be better as sky is yellowish.

I'll be looking forward to hear about your adventures with glazing. Mine so far is so-so but it is first time ever i do o much glazes in the painting. It drives me nuts.
