|The next step will be to add a subtle rainbow effect---lighter than I did with this one.|
|I'm using a wax resist, which I applied vertically for the first time ever.|
|Usually the wax drips in bubble dots but b/c of the vertical application on this one it's mostly falls and runs. I did purposely manipulate the wax over some of the gold feathers to keep some of the gold bright.|
...and now I just have to wait for the wet canvas to dry. It's winter and it's freezing in the studio (I used the kiln to warm it up today b/c the space heater just wasn't cutting it) so it could be weeks.
But really...the beauty of oil paint is so worth it.
