This is the second Work In Progress photo I have posted.
I am well into the first colour layer now. I’m still feeling my way round this one but I do feel it is starting to pull together. The colour is used quite thinly – with a mix of 2 parts OMS to 1 part walnut oil. I am mainly using Winsor & Newton artist grade oil paint but I have been moving over to Michael Harding artists oil colours – beautiful handmade oil paint.
I do have to stress that I’m not saying this is how you should paint. I’m learning all the time myself – I always will be learning – you never stop. All I am saying is this works for me but my technique changes all the time. There are many ways to use oil paint, this is just one.
Of course, there is more to come very soon.
Thank you for your interest and the fantastic comments.
