    7 Layer Flemish Technique

    Here we go,
    Chambersecret had mentioned the flemish technique in the portrait thread & I thought I'd try it out.
    I found a basic tutorial on 7 layer Flemish Tech for real life oils. and tried to adapt that to Artrage Virtual oils.
    It's not much, just a little egg cup, and as always I got frustrated with the blending, but I'd welcome all +/- comments please.
    ta,
    F.L.Y.

    Fly this is a very nice paint. The metalic aspect of the "poché" is terrific. Also the colors are terrific. Congratulations on this AshArt.

    Thank you very much Oriane.
    I am just trying to learn by example.
    Sometime soon I'll have to attempt a 'live' still life.

    Fantastic one -- I can relate to blending frustrations. But this is gorgeous... I'll have to track down the "flemish" instructions.

    That is absolutely brilliant Fly. Wonderful painting. You should definitely do a walk through of this technique. What's the canvas? It is fantastic!

    its looking very good. check out www.artpapa.net it has a few free tuts. i know on the blending alot of times once you add the glaze of the next layer it smoothes it out some what. but its looking great.

    Thank you Vaik, Sketch & Radar.

    Yachris, yes, you must try it out, then we can compare notes and if you find a solution to the blending frustrations lemme know please Right now I'm pinning all my hopes on AR3 to overcome that.

    GZ, Thank you very much. I actually followed a walkthro myself, here's the link for that:

    The canvas is thanks to Misterpaint's canvases with a little scale change.

    CS, yes I did check out Artpapa too, but they had only three free lessons. the one with the rose was pretty good tho. Thanks for bringing up the whole flemish thing
