Today I wanted to try painting garlic again with natural light from the sun. I chased the shadows – if felt a lot like plein air painting.
I’ve been playing with ‘mixing white’ lately, which is a transparent color. It’s fun to use, but I end up using a LOT more paint. Can you tell how thick the paint is?

Beautiful! Working in whites is indeed a challenge. I’ve never heard of “mixing white” but have heard of zinc white which is transparent. I wonder how similar they are?
Thank you Nancy! I haven’t used zinc white, but I bet it’s the same. I’ll have to get a small tube and test it out. It is so much different from using titanium white!
I love the subtle colors in this one!
Thank you Jonni! The colors were quite a challenge. I plan to do lots more garlic!
I love the way you are using your white paint and it certainly shows in your pictures. I also enjoyed following your On in the Shade, beautiful!
Thanks so much, Steinunn!
Another nice one! Exploring something with natively few colors on a nearly matching background is really working for you!
Thank you Xan!
I just love it!
Thank you Margaret!!
