I have decided I want to learn more about oil paint - the inherent qualities of the various colours, their drying times, relative transparency and body.
In the following works-in-progress, I first laid down the ground colour using a bit of mineral spirit for quicker drying. Now I'm painting on top using no oil or solvent mediums at all, just purely paint.
Blues seem to move differently from yellows.
And here I started with a fairly opaque underpainting:
It is possible to create some glaze effects with transparent colours, using no oil or solvent medium whatsoever! I am quite excited with this discovery.
A wall full of experiments!
