This is an ancient oil painting by me. I had teen sisters for babysitters when I was 9 months. yes I remember them. Their Raphaelite red hair especially. I always had to have red haired dolls. hi if your looking Sexton sisters.
Right on. I work SUPER big, like 16 by 8 in acrylic and it takes about a month. I'm trying to get down to working smaller and painting with oils. Your work has inspired me to push in that direction even more. Kudos.
Im terrible at acrylics..This was done in oils and I put down the shapes with just white and raw umber then used color glazes on top the final highlights. Oils can take a while to dry in between layers too.So, that eats some time. Id like to try painting smaller. make them almost like gems. hey Im happy to inspire ya man
I would not say the colors are as rich or varied but genesis heat set oils are nice. they dry with heat which allows you to keep working in layers very quickly. its also cleans up with soap and water. you never had to deal with paints drying up or taking too long to dry.
Well I use them to paint my figures.Which are plastic.A bit different for a ground and non porous. I use a gel like glaze medium for sheers and the thinner for making a buttery texture.no medium for impasto or thicker visible brush strokes. Solvent will make watercolor like washes but, those will dry. that could be used for sketching in at start.
At least on plastic Ive found that wet on wet detailing the brush picks the paint back up. I have to cure before adding fine details.could be the slick surface of the polymer clay.
so Ive not used them on a canvas base. I dont want to say they are the same.but are worth using for the pluses. Im a long time Grumbacher user btw. I have a prepped canvas maybe I can test them out and get back to you. Ive had mine 7 years without lids. My pallet never dries out. I use a china soap dish with lid. nor do I get brushes with dried on paint! You can get a cheap heat gun too not their $50 model.
