Studio No. 717 - OVERLOOK (Truchas, New Mexico) - 48"x12" Work in Progress (Glazes) - Glazes are applied with painting medium.  The fast-drying medium has turpentine in it, so it is well to let this phase of the painting sit until the color is dry to the touch.  Color notes:   Trees: Prussian Blue, Burnt Sienna and Chrome Oxide Green Opaque.  Snow:  Permalba Titanium White, Holbein Rose Grey, touch of cobalt blue - some Payne's Grey.
