Category Archives: Oil Paintings

I use an indirect method of painting called the mixed technique. It is indirect (in contrast to all prima) because many layers are applied to create the finished product. I usually begin with a transposed drawing done in silverpoint and india ink, then develop an underpainting in egg tempera before applying the final layers in oil. The final layers are painted wet on wet, that is, oil paint painted into a very thin layer of fresh glaze medium.
