For Painting 2, we have to do an oil painting step by step process that old masters used to use to make their photos photograph-like.
My work is more abstract so this project is super boring for me. We put two coats of oil primer on our panel and then mixed a brown with compliments (I used red, yellow, and blue) which is basically a dark brown and mixd it with our oil medium.
My oil paints are mainly Gamblin and the medium I enjoy using is a mixture that is 2:2:1 Safflower oil:Turpenoid Natural:galkyd lite (I know thats spelled wrong) ha.
Basically glazes with this painting but each picture is the end of the next day. I made sure to take a picture at the end of everyday!
