I started working in oils again. It’s been about 10 years. Having worked in pastels, pen and ink, and charcoal for the last few years I have a huge back-log of images that I can use as the base study for oils. The pastel below this one was done more than a year ago and this oil on canvas was done this week.
So far I haven’t picked up a brush. I’ve been working strictly with a palette knife. It’s keeping it loose and thu far I like the results. This image is 10x10. I’m also using the water workable oils by Winsor Newton. I’m finding that I really like the way the paint is going on the canvas and it’s got a great luster once it’s on.
