Little Landscape
Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 cm, first state after grossly sketching in the main forms.

Spent an afternoon at my easel. See the result above.

Oil primed canvas, seized with a mixture of white and ivory black, bound in oil, thinned with turpentine. Colours used: white, siena nat., burnt umber, ultramarine blue, chrome yellow, ivory black. Medium used: 2 parts damar varnish 1:4, 1 part turpentine, 1 part sun dried linseed oil.

Photo is a bit blurred, I'm afraid. Shall try to post a better one soon.

Very nice! As an artist, I think you'd be interested to use the ArtGuru smartphone application.

Hervorragender Blog, werde wieder kommen.
Als Nichtmuttersprachler Englisch tuhe ich mich leider schwer beim Lesen.

Dear Gwen, Thank you very much. The application sounds interesting, although I haven't got a smartphone... Kind regards, Nicki

Tausend Dank für das Kompliment. Ja, die meisten Leser des Blogs kommen aus dem englischsprachigen Raum; aber ich werde versuchen, die Beiträge in Zukunft zweisprachig zu veröffentlichen! Herzliche Grüße, Nicki Schaepen
