(dont look at me)
I’ve had some really lazy days recently really with nothing much to report, but i have really been focusing all my time into finding jobs how very boring, all i want to do is paint.
So that exactly what i did today i bought a new canvase and my Oil paint, it is the first time i have done an oil painting in 10years, i just spontaniously created it, its sucha great feeling creating a piece of work for the fun of it, i decided to paint the The Royal Academy. I didnt have a large variety of paints because they got stolen at university and i never replaced them so all i basically had was white, flesh tint, yellow, red, dark brown and Burnt Umber so i thought i might purchase some wonderful colour like Aquamarine, turquoise and some nice maroon colours. I am just geeking up on how to use glazes, there was this girl at uni that thought she was the best because she painted really well in Oil so i have decided to learn so i can show off haha.
This isnt the final product this is just the last picture i took to show the progress of the painting i didnt do any under coats i painted directly onto the canvase.
I think Oil painting is the only art technique that i have never really used so when i started creating this painting i felt like a child slapping onto the canvase and not caring what it looked like..greatest fun ever. I have decided for my summer that i will take the summer to learn this wonderful new skill….has anyone else got things they wish to learn or the summer?
What do you guys reckon to my oil painting skills? Any hints or tips about oil painting?
