Thanks for all your thoughtful and kind comments on experiment #1.
Onto experiment #2.: Experiments #1 and #2 have photo challenges in common, even though this surface is not shiny. These colors are somewhat brighter than the original and playing in PS didn’t get them right. No glazing here, the paint was applied fresh but thick with medium.
I say, “meh”. So far I’m confirming that the way I usually work, seems to work better for me. I’m going to have to paint this model in my old tried and true fashion, because I just haven’t begun to do her justice.
Tomorrow, oil experiment #3
