    Thanks Pierre; aluminum is a GREAT surface to paint on. I’m so glad I decided to try it!

    Lovely. The progression of the blues is fab and the reflections are beautiful. Love the color on the cup!

    Great to see the second part,what is delay between the grisaille and the final painting? Do you use any medium with your paint?

    Thanks Alastair. I allowed the grisaille to dry overnight. That was probably enough because it was thinly applied (heavily diluted with turpentine), and raw umber is a very fast drier.

    For the final layer, I usually use only linseed oil for a medium, though I have experimented with some of the standard medium formulas in the past.
