Iron Oxide

I got lots of work done pretty quickly during the afternoon yesterday. The sky is shaping up well with a new layer of transparent Iron Oxide helping it to look quite dramatic, but it’s still lacking a few more layers of colour. Glaze painting is a slow process of building layer after layer into the surface.

Meanwhile, I’ve used the same transparent Iron Oxide to seal my completed sketch of the Traveler, finding out that my favorite paint manufacturer (Graham) doesn’t have this pigment in a tube anything larger than a 1.25 ml! The horror! I’ll use one of these teeny little tubes in one go when working on a canvas this size.
