Lighthouse Park, Finished

I do believe that I have finally finished this painting and it sure looks snazzy on the wall. I learnt a lot doing a grisaille underpainting... so much so, that I have started a new painting using the same technique (I'll show a sneak peak of that painting tomorrow).

The only thing that I didn't enjoy with this painting was using Gamsol... I didn't like the stickiness that occurred as I mixed it with the paint. If anyone has tips on how to use it... I would love to hear. My next painting I will be using linseed oil on the top layers.
