I bought a glazing medium which was something I really have no idea about but let me tell you, I'M IN LOVE WITH THE STUFF. It basically acts as a thinner but adds a gloss and sheen to the paint and brings out all the colours and oh oh OH. So good. I find it really lets the paint pigment come through, even when I was working on unprimed stretched linen. It means your paint goes further as well, and seeing as I'm poor that's always a good thing. I can't wait to keep experimenting....Today has been such a departure from last week when I was so frustrated with myself and painting! I have to just remember to keep playing and practicing and it will slowly unravel and I will gain confidence...I think.
I have a great book that was given to me called 'Chinese Painting' by Chow Chen-Ying and it has some great tutorials on how to loosly draw flowers and petals in a beautiful oriental style. I love it! It really helped me.
Out for now, bye!
