Painting the Amati Violin - Blocking in the color


This is the next stage of my "oil painting" where I am blocking in the color of the "Amati Violin."  I want to try and keep the highlighted areas of the old wood soft and light.  I have to allow the oil painting under layers to dry completely before I can apply the next layer.  I will always have about five or more  paintings going at a time so that no time is wasted while waiting for these areas to dry.  I can just switch back and forth between the different paintings.
