Finishing up with the final few glazes now. Some work has been done on the right side of the painting as well as the sky. Only a couple more days left in it now.
I varnished the whole painting with retouch varnish the other day to help even out all the tones where the paint had sunk and lost its gloss.
I am also trying to perfect the photography and especially the lighting. I am using two 500 watt halogen lights on either side of the painting and it is working pretty well. There are, however, still a couple areas which don’t look true to life – especially the overly dark section around the top of the sky which is a bit more subtle in real life.
