Quiet Stream

There was soooo much green in this painting. I mixed linseed oil and sap green and then put a healthy amount onto the canvas before beginning. I think I put it on a little too thick because I had trouble keeping it from mixing with the other layers of paint. Watch me paint this one here:


Very nice. You might try a very small amount of paint thinner on each successive coat. Remember Ross's rule: a thin paint will stick to a thicker paint. Too thick or not, still very nice.

How in the world did you get your tree trunks so perfect??? This painting looks great, excellent job.
