Caroussel, finished by Raipun Caroussel, finished by Raipun
As soon as the paint was dry, I added layers of colour in a process of glazing. I knew it was a risky job because I couldn't predict the final result.
And that's when disaster striked! After adding gentle shades of orange and pink in order to create a soft skintone, I immediatly noticed that the underlying grey-tones were fatal.
No matter how i tried, I had to face the fact that my little daughter's portrait looked like a three day old corpse!
No worries, exept for the fact that I had to repaint the whole skintone. It worked out allright in the end, but the vintage effect that I was aming for, went lost in the whole process of repainting. Still, a nice result, even if not spectacular. I hope you will enjoy!

This glazing technique is seriously risky, I have tried it before using acrylics but with oil? That's simply crazy... But look what a beautiful painting it turned out being, I'm really stunned by your choice of colours. Even the black and white version is such a masterpiece. Hats off.

When I saw this I thought it must be a self portrait as it favored you so much...then I read your description. I love your work...all of it, How wonderful to be able to paint your "heart". Most of us never even learn, in a lifetime what our heart is...thank God you have and your art has touched me in a way no ones has in many years...it makes me want to paint again...not paint your art, but mine...something I thought lost forever.

Beautifully done portrait! I think you carried off the vintage feel very well :). I layer colour with glazing a lot in my oils . Have found that a soft green works wonderful for an underneath color of skin tones, believe it or not :).
