"You can't apply finish to what is not finished already"



Ingres said: "You can't apply finish to what is not finished already". I am working hard at finishing a layer on which to apply finish. Some knowledge of what a sub finish layer looks like could be a help. Anyway, what you see here is my shot at a sub finish layer!
This is walking, No5 in my five action series, and when complete should be the walking statement to hang in the Hexad show on May 6 - 12 The plan was to hang all five as a succession, but the colour in them seems to intensify each time I work on them, so much so that each one demands more and more space. They should be quite a sight when hung together!
