This is an 11x14 oil painting on wood. I had a lot of fun doing this one. I used an essential oil, balsam, oil medium on this one. This was one past Venice turpentine, one part stand oil, and one part oil of spike. The medium allowed for a well blended effect, and allowed each brush stroke to fuse, and the surface to become more level. When dry, I varnished with a thin layer of amber varnish. I think I will apply one more.
