'Post Box"

I have started using 'Artisan Water Mixable Fast Drying Medium' for the glazing in this painting. Gosh it was fun. It was a good consistency to mix with the paint and dried quickly to a shiny glaze. The gold of the initial background layer shines through the glazes of the red post boxes. The only moan is that it was a little too fast drying for my slow painting.

The relief at being back and using a Mac is huge. This is tempered by having to learn how to use all the upgraded applications which is slowing me down.

Great to have you back online Lorna, glad you’re enjoying the Mac…This PC is wheezing badly as I speak…:(

The glazing on the post box looked stunning when you bought it into the art group meeting last week, wonderful depth. I shall have to experiment a little with this fast drying medium.
