oil painting techniques ~ portrait 3/3 (layer 4)

if video doesn’t play click in the time-line this is layer four which i stopped at for this demo. however you can use as many layers as you want, if I’m doing a very finished painting then I would no doubt use many more In layer 3 i simply applied a warm glaze & made some adjustment to the eyes colors and mediums used – same as for the underpainting color layer + cadmium orange (you don’t necessarily need to use any colors other than the basic 4 that i mention, but use others if you want). If you’d like to copy this painting for learning purposes that’s fine part 1/3 www.youtube.com part 2/3 www.youtube.com image homepage.ntlworld.com website www.mniland.com
