First oil painting of the term! Well, not finished, anyway. I’m going to continue working on this next week as there are way too many juicy things I can do with paint that would feel really unnatural (or time-consuming) with charcoal. Paint is just awesome. We did this with a raw umber imprimatura wash and then basically did the whole lifting up/drawing thing with raw umber paint. It took me a while to -start- understanding that less paint more solvent = lighter, and more paint less solvent = darker.
I also have some atrocious landscape watercolours that I did last night… well, we won’t talk about those.
