Oils Week Two!
I am amazed how little i knew about oil paints!! I know how to draw and obviously how to paint but i'm learning all these new techniques and effects which you just can't achieve in acrylics! And also by having a limited amount of paints consisting of the primary colours it is also making mix colours again! A part of painting i had totally become lazy in as i just bought the colours i wanted! So here it is, the second stage of development! I concentrated on the top half of the canvas as next week, when the paint is dry, i am being shown how to knock the background further back into the painting using a mix of linseed oil and sansodor. I can't wait!!
