Oil painting is likely to go the way of digital painting until I have more control. I’m over blending in this medium sometimes inadvertently as the layer below hasn’t dried. While I do love this quality of oils, the pleasure of moving paint around, I often do not like the over blended result. The patchy kind of work where the strokes are distinct appeals to me more. Maybe I should use Liquin to speed up the drying process.
KMP 26 & 27. Stopping at the half hour mark continues to be a goal which I’m struggling to get at. The answer may be to start a new larger painting which I could switch to after crossing the half an hour mark on the starts.
KMP’s are skill building exercises advised by Kevin Macpherson in his book Fill Your Oil Paintings with Light & Color. I started these in 2007 and am continuing with it in 2010. If you want to know more about this set of exercises click here.
