  :clap:  :clap: good going Karen. I could not even start to paint along, much less freehand draw at the same time.  :congrats:

you must just be careful of doing that - by adding a lean layer (layer with less oil) over a fat layer (layer with more oil) you could cause your painting crack later down the line

The gray layer is grisaille. The correct way to say it is : greeze-eye . On our next class Nolan is going to pronounce it correctly or I will go down there and rock his gizzywing (women read this).  :thankyou:
If not now, when? If not me, who?

Claude, you speak with authority!   :o   :2funny:

Beware, Nolan, please, please practice your French!  Can you say, greeze-eye? 

Thanks for the French lesson, Claude, my highschool French has left me.

OK finally finished this grey painting.  Have never given my black paint tube such an outing.  On to colour!  Noticed that the table doesn't quite look flat, some is the way I cropped the edges, some of it is that the table is not painted straight, will have to fix this up a little before the next stage.

The lamp is amazing, Gail.
What medium did you use?

One thing, if I may; the ribs on the vase seem to curl too much in the central portion.

Hi Ray.  The medium I used was M Graham Walnut Alkyd Medium-I am using oils.  This medium tends to be too glossy for me, so I usually use 1/3 damar varnish 1/3 mineral spirits and 1/3 walnut oil, (this is not too glossy) but I was too lazy to mix up some.  You may be able to buy a mat version of the pre-mixed medium, but I have shiny.  Not totally sure which ribs that are too curly-do you mean below the large swags, or do you mean the swags themselves.  I went more with the photo rather than Nolan's version, so it will be different. I do have to do some tweaking yet, so I am happy for any suggestions that will make it better.

Thanks, Gail.

Sorry I wasn't clear. I mean the vertical ribbing on the glass/vase not on tha lamp.
Looking at the photo, I think they should be a bit straighter.

You are probably right about the glass, may fix it.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Wow Gail your lamp is absolutely amazing.   Well done.....whatever medium you used it worked.   I think it is worth the effort to fix the vase lines cause you have put so much effort into the lamp you don't want it to spoil your painting.

Once a again beautiful work......beautiful detail....... O0

Fantastic   :heeha:  I haven't seen anything concerning this painting other than what you have posted Gail. I'm just wondering if the left side of the vase should be rounded a bit more like the righthand side?
Brilliant work thus far...can't believe there are more stages!   :eek:  What's next?   :clap:   :clap:
Cheers, Val
