    Hi I like to use different mediums when I paint. Can that work too if I have an oil painting with acrylic/watercolor?

    i made an oil painting while on a trip for someone and i was not aware that i had to varnish the painting afterwards (it was my first time with oil paints) it turned out great but now that i think of it.. it needs varnish or it would get dusty.

    I’m inspired! I’ve never seen any artist use his/her canvas as a palette as well. It’s super economical and I think that’s a great idea! Thank you ?. Please upload more.
