The First Layers of the Gordon Setter February 15, 2014 13:41

Today I woke excited as can be to begin the first layers of color on the Gordon Setter. You see I have been making color charts for a few years now. I just finished a batch that is all transparent colors. It took me about sixty hours to complete but the effort will pay off over a lifetime of painting.

There are fourteen color charts in the box.

The colors are glazed over the grisaille much like stain glass is placed over a window. The light travels through the transparent paint and the painting has a life like quality that is hard to beat.

  

Of course these are Iphone photos of the progress but when the detail starts to be put in I will use a better camera.
