I have just achieved a new one, more modern, more intense and with more saturated colors in the manner of the two other artists.
Van Gogh said ( more or less ) in front of the painting “Peonies in a vase” of Manet: “Wow, I like how Manet so honestly uses colors without that damned use of glazings!”
I think that the medium gouache would be perfect to use in this project too.
It is impossible to make glazings with it. Why nowadays this medium has been forgotten ?
