One Glazing Method for Fabrics
Today I have done the green of the pillow by mixing my green from yellow ochre, cadmium yellow, and viridian green with my heavy medium comprised of 60% linseed oil/40% mineral spirits, so that I achieve a more viscous paint, or glaze (first photo). Then, I took a little bit of black and brushed it into the shadows, and white for the highlights. The black and white help give shape and form to the pillow. When this is dry in a couple of days, I will easily paint on the pattern as the underpainting shows through my glaze and will be my guideline.
