prayer flags paintings stage 5

I went out to the studio just to have a look,
in tidy day clothes of course
Taped over both paintings and re-glazed the thin sharp gaps with a nearly white mix of paint and sunflower and turps
Removed the tape and added some more red, blue and yellow oil bar to bring up the colour again
They might be finished

I’ve worked on these for a week now, today I added a dribbly top coat of a very pale blue with safflower oil
It needs some more highlights so when this glaze layer is dry I will work over it with random scratches and dashes of white and yellow
Still a bit too specific and representative for my liking, looking for a more impressionistic abstraction
