This painting was created in 1997. I took gesso ground wooden board and paint it in several steps. The first layer is monochrome. The last one is colored. It painted thin layer wash. That`s why the first layer is turned visible. This method can be used if you work oil paint or tempera+oil, at the beginning you may use tempera and when it dries out you can continue with oil paint. This method does not require any white lead because the fare gesso ground is used.
