A painting by Susi Havens-Bezaire completed on September 9, 2014
Painted from my plein air field study #432. The Technique Mixte methodology dates back to the Dutch masters Hubert & Jan van Eyck where multiple layers of glazes are applied to a complete value study. Egg tempera is replaced in the glazing medium with Methyl Cellulose, which doesn't decay. This technique provides great luminosity to the painting.
