Super Hero Continued

Once the sepia lines dried over night, I applied a glaze of Transparent Red Oxide and Trans. Brown oxide combined with a mixture of OMS, walnut oil, and Daniel Smith Painting medium. Then comes the fun part. I start adding the colors into the glaze. At first, it doesn't blend very well, but you wait for the glaze to become slightly tacky and you can manipulate the paint much easier. And I'm loving the cad. red surface. It's doing very interesting things. You can't tell very well in these photos but the orange shows through in place adding interesting texture and contrast to the painting. One more pass after this dries and it will be done. I just need to watch I don't over work it. Darn. Now I want to do Harry Potter all over again using this technique.

Thank you , Corina. I thought of going bolder but I don't think I have it in me.

Wow, looking awesome, but please, speak the King's English! What do these things mean:

Transp Red Oxide (an oil color?)
Transp Brown (an oil color?)
OMS (???)

Thanks again for sharing your experiemnts. I will follow suit at some point ...

Sorry, Brian. Yes, both Transparent Red and Brown Oxide are oil colors (close to Burnt Sienna and Umber). OMS is Odorless Mineral Spirits.
