Turpentine: Laid down the first turpentine layers on those paintings mentioned recently. And yes, in the profile one- that is a finger emerging behind at speed. It’s a shame that both of these pictures are at the same stage, Ideally one would he half-way through, then if I’m in the mood for detailing I would choose one, otherwise work up the other.
Update: there’s something cringingly irksome about that finger picture. I usually feel like this at this stage, having poseted the picture for (potentially) all the world to see, I do feel s strong urge to fix it. I wonder how my motivation would work without that self-imposed pressure?
Note: I’ve taken it out untill it’s fixed up a bit.
