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!!
