What is the reason you use cooking olive oil? February 19, 2019 at 10:26 am dario19 Log in to Reply Great painting, careful with olive oil!

February 19, 2019 at 1:29 pm friedricengravy Log in to Reply I paint portraits in the same style but with acrylics (i used oil products in wood shops for years & knew enough to avoid the hassle in apartments) U r very familiar with mixing ur mid tones individually instead of simply blending the dark & light together. By doing so, u not only create real transitions from life, but u stop relying on slow dry times. If i want to soften an edge, i simply touch it as i go….literally with my finger. Breaking the sharp edge & turning the form. If u miss one for any reason & later would prefer a softer transition, reducing the color to a glaze & working over the edge takes care of this. No solvents, no long dry times, no fat over lean, more affordable products, & easy clean up. Even erasing from the early stage, sketching with a brush. If u use a smooth panel….u can literally tone the panel with a rag & wipe away the light values. I only mention this because i was shocked as well. A lot of acrylic work u see on line looks like craft paint, but that is due to people sharing the same bad painting techniques. Painters trying to slow down their dry time instead of focusing on the process of painting. I prefer panels but have had success with acrylics on stretched canvas & water color paper….u just cant (on canvas or paper) smear away paint, instead, u must rely on white. Other wise, u would assume my finished painting is oil.I think u would have the same experience…..give it a try!Happy painting February 19, 2019 at 2:09 pm Mary Habib Log in to Reply I cannot understand, how to use water color and mixed with oil.

I recently decided to try oil and picked water solubles but haven't touched them since the portrait painting class in Haliburton cuz I didn't understand how to handle them. This is so very helpful that I'm encouraged to take them out again. Am really enjoying your videos, though I agree that it would be nice to break them out into 3 or 4 stages in case we want to focus on a particular section. A portrait is a likeness where there is something wrong with the mouth. LOL – John Singer Sargent!

February 19, 2019 at 4:32 pm Julian HG Log in to Reply Nice one yupari! There’s so much misinformation about water soluble oil paints, I started with them them tried oil based ones, fell in love with oil based BUT I’ve only just discovered you can mix them all up in one painting (only if you use oil solvents) I’ve not had a single problem with this inc varnishing over ten plus portraits now 🙂 so you can always move on to ‘real’ oil paints afterwards if you like oils in general (and not worry about wasting money). Superb portrait again too, I really think the last 4 months of your output has been exceptional.
