Our White Patriotic Jumper had treatment of his parts:
Treatment, Tail, Part I; Treatment, Tail, Part II, Treatment, Tail, Part III,
Treatment, Knees and Thighs, and Treatment, Belly Split.
Patriotic was thoroughly Prepared for Finish Work,
and a base coat of Golden White Gesso was applied.
The White Patriotic Jumper is a sample treatment,
so our client, Restore Oregon, can see the process from start to finish!
This post is about oil painting the Patriotic Jumper!
The blue paint is mixed, and the first coat is applied.
Every part gets at least two coats, or an under coat and top coat on top of the gesso.
People think I am crazy to use small brushes, but using big brushes
means touch-up and cleanup, and I am fast with a small brush.
I use a big brush for big areas…
but for detail, it is much easier to use a half-inch flat or #8 or #10 round.
Patriotic is about to have his new tail, next post!
