Anna is my student that came to Maui to study, she is a new gifted artist. This is her 2nd oil painting. We will be studying the copal painting technique. It dries quickly and can be re-dissolved like mastic. It is the most blendable medium in oils.
Garrette Copal Medium. I never liked the brands of copal I tried until I tried Ron Garrett's (firstname.lastname@example.org) there wasn't enough control. His brand painted beautifully.
Here is her study.
Next we painted a still life with those three colors. Using a brush to draw with, here is my simple start from 3 marker points.
It took 3.5 hours to get this far.
Six hours later we were both finished our paintings, here is mine. 12-29-04.
Anna finished. This is her 3rd oil painting.
