Oil wash- rubbed away

14°C, clear.

Turpentine day 1: You’ve seen the rubbing away technique on these pages before, but not in black. It’s a very slippery method, it needs reworking many times since it’s prone to unexpected marks. Good thing is that the tonality is immediate – no need to wait for the drawing to be finished then filling in. That would be such a pain to wait- all the moment’s spur will have gone by then.
The canvas is about 20X28cm, and the whole exercise only took about 40 mins.
