Another Re-working

Seeing lots of these at the moment.

Blue Tit

This painting has been stacked in my studio for some time, so I ecided to work some wax into it. As it was an oil painting on stretched canvas, this meant cutting the canvas off and glueing it onto a board before I could work wax into it - the substrate needs to be rigid. I've read somewhere that the wax is supposed to go onto a porous surface. I hope this holds..

Old Hedgerow

Pushing oil paint around on homemade canvas boards.
 I ought to have stopped at this stage!
