Here is my hummingbird done in water soluble oils. It took some getting used to, because I found the paints didn’t stay fluid as long as regular oils. After reading entries online, I learned that most artists using this medium extend it with linseed, safflower or other oil, not water. Once I did that I found I could add regular oil paint to the mixture with pretty much success.
The sunrise canvas is a WIP. I will show the finished product next week, I hope. This is my entry for Paint Party Friday.
Because it is cumbersome to comment on Blogspot artists’ blogs, I am switching over to my Blogspot blog for my future Paint Party Friday entries. Today I am posting on both blogs.
This week I decided to see if I could get back into painting with oils. It has been years and years since my last foray into this field and all my tubes were twisted and dried out. So I got a beginner’s set of water-soluble oils. If this works out I will graduate to more professional grade paints. Here is my small canvas that I have started. I hope to have it finished by next week. This is my entry for Paint Party Friday. If you haven’t visited there before, you have a real treat in store. I always enjoy seeing what exciting works are being produced.
This is my entry this week for Paint Party Friday, a watercolor of my Li’l Redhead who was fashioned after my red-haired granddaughter. I am also entering it in a weekly challenge: 4×4 Friday.
