Still Wet

well, Wild Oats 008 is still wet. it has been about three days since i put down my brushes on this painting. i never use driers (copal medium, cobalt drier, japan drier, liquin, are there any others?) so i have to wait for the paints to dry in its own chemical terms, however that works. the client is expecting this painting by the 15th....hmmm.

Some juicy paint there, donald~ maybe you can post a bigger pic of the finished piece? it looks good enough to eat!

yeah, that's what i was after, to try to get the 'juiciness' factor in the paint thickness. but this makes the whole process a few days longer. not to mention all the cadmiums i had to use, in its most saturated form puts me in a place where i have no drying control. i want to glaze it already!
