Landscape Painting in Oil: Plein Air on the Croton River

I used my HD Flip camera to record the progress of a painting I did along the Croton River over a two hour period.

  3. Hey Steven,

    I couldn't catch the name of the alkyd medium you use. What's it called? Thanks.

  5. John,

    Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I use several different alkyd mediums depending on how I intend to work. Several have a gel consistency so they won't run when I put a clump on my palette (Galkyd Gel Medium and Liquin, for example), and others are fluid and create a gloss finish (Galkyd medium and Galkyd Light, for example).
    Steve
