A Tui Moment

Yipee, I finished my tui painting, ‘a tui moment’ – click on the picture to load a large version, then click on the picture again to read the text.

A Tui Moment

This painting is the first one I’ve done with a real layer technique. All my paintings prior to this one have been painted predominantly in one go with some finer detail added as a second layer, usually with turps to thin the paint. This time round, after priming the canvas, I did an underpainting, a first detail layer, followed by a couple of other detail layers. Each layer was successively thinned using linseed oil.

I’m pretty happy with the results – what do you think?
