Face on linen (3) – first oil layers

posted in: General Art News | 0

I've decided to paint this portrait in oils and I'm not regretting it. I haven't painted a great deal in oils due to the convenience of acrylics but, within minutes of putting brush to canvas, I think I'm hooked. I've been using liquin to aid the flow of the oils which has the added advantage of speeding the drying time, meaning that my thin layers are touch dry a day after applying. The eyes are looking a little uneven so I'll resolve that next.
