niiiice to see it like this - very interesting and informative!
thanks for submiting! =D

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).

i see, thanks a lot for the info!
well itīs funny, because the way you present it, in these steps, it looks as if you had a fluid process of creating it.

so did it annoy you to wait, or was it rather good to continue another day? (iīm sorry to bug you =D)

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.

yeeah.. this is really a great advantage in painting with oil, you can keep editing it over the days and weeks without the newer parts looking alien or being too seperated from the older ones.

so, thank you very much for taking your time to give me patient replies, itīs really good to talk about their art and learn from experienced people like you!
