Workshop: Painting in Oils

Posted on Thu 07 Mar 2019

I went to confirm my suspicions that I have been missing a great deal in not trying oils for 50 years, and so it proved. If I can only find space and time it's an area I'd love to go into. It's subtle and encourages observation and understated representation in a different way to watercolour. Plus the obvious freedoms of doing what you want, when you want and getting rid of the whole lot if you're losing it; a whole new world.

  • You’re so right Brian! I love oils but many people are afraid to even try them, a shame because they don’t know what they’re missing. I could probably say the same about watercolours, but don’t think I have enough years left in me to tackle them in any depth! Good luck with the oils. Are you using traditional or water soluble?
