1127 The Admirer, Still Life with Figurines, 8x10 oil on board

 I am trying out a new technique. It's based on the Flemish technique. First you do an underpainting in monotone and then you glaze over top.  I really enjoyed doing the underpainting. I found it very relaxing. But so far I'm not pleased with the glazing. Too many streaks. I suspect that it's because I only did one layer of glazing.  If I do many layers of very thin glazes I bet there won't be any streaks.  Consider this a work in progress.
By the way. What should I title this painting? I called it the Admirer because little bird seems to adore the lady. But I'm open to ideas for other titles.
