niiiice to see it like this - very interesting and informative! thanks for submiting!
how many hours/days did it take you to finish? i donīt have any first hand experience with oil painting, i know only that you have to let the layers set/dry for some time... but i donīt know if this rule applies for thin layers like these.
Thank you very much ! Mmmh hard to tell how many hours I spent on it. As you mentioned, I had to wait for it to dry before adding one last color glaze. So it's really hard to tell. Maybe a week or so (drying included).
Well these steps show the quite fluid part of it, you are right. The finish glaze was done after it was completely dry. It didn't annoy me to wait, I had other pictures to work on so it was fine. Plus I like to take my time, have a new look the next day with fresh eyes to see what's wrong.
