Hi Stephen,

I've enjoyed viewing your work for many months. I admire your style.

Your paint application appears to be quite thin, or in thin layers. Is this correct? Are these paintings done in one session, or do you allow layers to dry before additional work is done?

I tend to work rather impasto, so I might begin to work this way in the future.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks,
David Kreinberg

Hi David, I do work Alla Prima, finishing a painting in one session. The paint is thick in areas and thin in areas, starting the drawing and underpainting with thin paint working thicker as I go. I do not glaze as I work wet in wet. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Stephen
