Completed painting

After the first layer dries (three days), I apply glazes (thin transparent layers of color that alter the underlying color—think stained glass). Each new layer of oil painting should have slightly more oil than the previous layer. I usually complete two or three layers–allowing sufficient drying time between each layer.
