Bruton Parish-Color Stage 2


I've applied second layer of color.  This time, rather than rubbing Liquin onto canvas, I rubbed a medium mixture of Turpentine, Damar Varnish, and Linseed Oil.  I have a tendency to major on the minors in these early stages, i.e. lattice work on windows, wires holding tarp onto canopy, etc..  On the cloud and the bright part of the steeple I glazed a thin layer of Titanium White and Burnt Sienna.  Definitely one more stage, probably two andI'll finish.
