large painting 36x48 cold wax medium

Lavender and Lace 36x48 oil 
First time I used cold wax medium. Not sure if I will use this again. Mixing and thinning and drying time, not sure if it is worth the effort.

I forgot to post the steps

The reference photo. I think it is by Gateway park near Castle Rock
The sketches to placement and design
The prep of the canvas with acrylic wash, hardly any texture other that the tooth of the canvas
The tools - plans change ended up using the 1" and 2" brushes. The 4" brush wouldn't fit into my solvent can. Need a new can. lol
The scary part - is this gonna work?
Finished. --- for now -- maybe it'll change with fresh eyes.

30x40

Deer Trail 30x40 oil
I really like painting large.
