This is a detail of my painting of Carolyn that shows my technique of applying a thin wash of oil paint thinned in turpentine and Liquin paint medium.

This is a photo of  Liquin paint medium, a brush, a rag and a jar that contains purple oil paint mixed with Liquin and turpentine which I applied to a painting I am currently working on.  I applied the paint over the painting with the brush than wiped the surface with the rag leaving paint in the valleys of the canvas.

I used burnt umber for the mixture of Liquin ,turpentine and paint on my wife’s painting. When this wash dried I applied oil paint on the peaks of the canvas using a dry brush technique. The necklace,earring and bracelet  was painted last, using a well used bristle brush loaded with oil paint.
