    Can I use pure walnut oil as a substitute for turpentine, to thin out the paint for the underlayer? I am trying to avoid the toxicity of solvents.

    I'll just put this here, The Trellis, 1862 by Gustave Courbet
    It's not the same but it made me think of Andrew's portrait.

    I use a t-square and dress makes chalk for vertical lines but I thought your line of horizons should never be center. Wait, we are doing a face. Lol
