I was asked to paint a picture --in a different style than I ever have before, she explained to me what she wanted and gave me a photo of the style she wanted, so here is the start of it. The painting is on a canvas 36X24 .....this is just the first phase, need it to dry to add the leaves, details, high-lights and low lights....It is very wet, used walnut oil, not sure how long that will take to dry?

Dana- try adding the pic again, it's not in your post.
Walnut oil is a slow dryer. In the future, if you want to make a quick start, try walnut-alkyd. It speeds up the drying time. For now, you'll just have to be patient... and don't add any alkyds to subsequent layers.
If it seems too wet, or kind of thick for the first layer, you can lay paper towels over it and gently press to blot up some of the oil/paint.

Sorry it's some blurry -- I'll try to take another one later, our home computer isn't working right now so on my lunch and breaks I check out and take care of my computer things....Hope you can see this one. Dana

I think I am finshed with it now -- I am waiting to see if I got my clients style she requested.

Thank you Janet for your kind comments, Dana

Thank you all for your kind words -- my client saw a glimpse of it—the picture was too small, the one I send first. She says... what she can see of it that she likes it very much….she lives in Portland and I will need to send it to her again via email, a better/larger picture when I can….but unable to right now, as I have a full weekend with three couples staying here -- Friday until Sunday and she is okay with that.
