I spent the afternoon with Jayne and Holly and we finished watching the Richard McKinley dvd. We also tried doing our own painting using the oil stain underpainting. It was a challenge! I think that one needs practice getting the underpainting good enough so that you really can let it work for you. That will take many more tries. But I really did enjoy the oil paint technique. This painting was actually 12x18 but I thought it had become two paintings. I like the cropped version better and now I actually have two paintings! I would like to try this technique some more!
