I decided to try this outside on my porch table. Here’s some technical stuff for people that paint. I went to Utrecht yesterday to buy more of my secret weapon. What may you ask would that be? Flex Gel–I discovered it many years ago and really like using it for my medium. They stopped making it! This is way worse than when they discontinue your favorite lipstick. Now I’m not sure what to use. I know about making it myself, but it tends to glob over before I finish it and now that I’m working small I only need a little. I broke out the free sample of Neomeglip…the jury’s out on this one. What mediums do you use?
This painting had its challenges in that the sun kept going behind the clouds but when it returned I quickly got down my impressions. My palette was getting hit by a lot of light so that made it a bit tough to see what I was doing too.
