This week I worked on an oil painting of some purple flowers at the edge of a forest. Starting with a rough sketch using thinned oil paint with odorless mineral spirits, I drew in my images, then started adding color with more thinned oil paint.
Following the “fat over lean” method, I continued painting, adding more oil paint and less mineral spirits, building up thin layers, trying to avoid overly thick paint to keep things moving forward.
