15 July 2009 - "CORDOVA AFTERNOON" - 24"x30" Work in progress - Phase II - The Glazes - transparent and semi-transparent colors -- painted over the underpainting after it has dried using the painting medium (recipe for medium in column on the right of this page). The sky is completed -- Thalo Blue, Thalo Green, a dab of Ochre, some Prussian Blue and Paynes Grey for variety. Stay tuned.

15 July 2009 -- "CORDOVA AFTERNOON" - 24"x30" Original Oil on Fine Belgian Linen. Underpainting - Palette colors mixed with turpentine and MG Underpainting White. Sky: Thalo Blue, Thalo Green, touch of ochre to gray color a bit. Middle Ground - combinations of Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Yellow. Foreground: Ochre and Diox. Purple. Back at work, but just barely -- summer has arrived -- setting up a new palette today. I like to block in several paintings at a time -- that way each morning I can work on one canvas while the other ones dry. DC
