Playing With Oils

Just a little fun with my oils. I tried a technique of laying in patches of tone and then smoothing out. I was surprised to find  yesterday's paint still wet until I remembered that the while is mixed with safflower oil. It could take days to dry so although the Gamblin white does provide a very bright white, a linseed oil based white is needed.


  1. Patient man.... I would have already gone in too soon and made mud of my efforts!
