Hi Everyone, I have been busy in the studio doing a fairly large oil painting. I am using water soluble oils and my medium of choice is walnut oil. There is very low odor and the painting dries a little faster, probably than regular oils. I haven't painted a whole lot in oils for years and years, as I was allergic to turpentine and linseed oil. I'm not sure about the paint itself....I feel a little wary, but am proceeding and we will see!
I sat up a still life with some potted plants and a bouquet of zinnias. I still have lots of work to do before I will call it finished.
So far I like what I have done. I have to work on the flowers some more and the fruit. I am beginning to like the look of the shadows on the pots. I have worked on this about 3 days now, off and on. It may take another 3! I find that I need some breaks fairly often and am doing some other creative things, such as making some jewelry. There are not enough hours in the day!
