I hear you - would rather be quite busy in the studio rather than other things! Are you mixing your own colors...seems like you were using egg-based oils?

I mix a lot of my own colours using baseline store bought oil paints (usually Windsor-Newton) (but not from the bottom-up with pigments - that's a fantasy I'll reserve for my retirement). Where I am experimenting with different qualities and lustres is in the media I use to dilute them - especially like walnut oil lately.  But in the Resurrection Series I prefer to use as little medium as possible, to get more of a feel of immediacy.  However, your eye is keen in that you've noticed there's something different about the Madonna painting, where I used quite a bit of medium in the paint, as it helped me cope with a lot of the underpinning painting - which was a rather strong image to overcome

Lol - ahhh, retirement...sounds kinda nice...;)

Cool - really adds a sculptural quality to your pieces as well, and very neat to hear a bit of your process...really love your work Olga!
