Oil painting

And another

Having another go with the oil portrait but going large – we shall see.

Trying something new by adding some darker brown layers and white before adding the colours on top. 

After about 5 days waiting for the white to dry have finally been able to add a little more paint. Starting to take shape but can’t wait to get the top layers on which basically involves blobs of brightly coloured paint!

More detail going on – soon time for some serious paint. Don’t know much about mediums but I think the next step is going to be using linseed oil. So far just used liquid and white spirit.

Finally, something half decent! A pencil drawing of my youngest. In case anyone is wondering he is holding a menu over his head! This is so much better than the last two pictures I attempted which were filed in the bin (although they were pastel landscapes – maybe they are just not my thing).

This does still have some issues but good to do something ok again.
