Twlight in Venice 20 x 24x 1 1/2

Then completed painting, I am very happy with the results using Transparent oils.
I have started to add the transparent oils, as you can see the canvas is very shiny. It is starting to create a luminosity I really like. As you can see I always darken my colors before I finish with the final oils.
I am still working with the acrylic under painting.

Twlight in Venice

I wanted to do a painting with transparent oils, in a very painterly style. Lots of jewel colors reminding me of a stained glass window. Here is the beginning sketch with some acrylics.
