Back to oils! This is my first attempt at a real piece, on a canvas pad. Learned a few things:
- You can extend the paint a lot more with oil than water-based paint. Spreading a small bit of paint over a lot of canvas makes a nice smoky effect.
- Oils are less opaque than gouache or casein. This made adding highlights tricky, especially over wet paint.
- It’s hard to relax and remember that the paint won’t dry right away on either the piece or the palette. 😀
