Some improvement, but slow going. This took about 4 HR of painting time over 2 days.
So much oil in the Geneva paints I was using that it was impossible to get the background color on the canvas and as you can see, the umber background color still shows through. I just gave up on that. It was like trying to paint with baby oil so I will probably change to another brand and medium for future. I also might try refrigerating my palette and the paints to see if that helps, or cutting open the tubes and sticking the paint in jars to try and see if better actual mixing rather than massaging and shaking the tubes helps.
I am in no way blaming the paint for my embarrassing lack of skill.
