Applying oil paint lesson


Lovely stuff this oil paint isn’t it Diana? Some glorious rich colours here!

Wonderful juicy colours Diana.

Thank you Alan and Fiona. It will be interesting to see how long it is before I’m desperate for my watercolours. Hopefully I will enjoy both. Yes Alan , it’s rich and covers beautifully. Full of possibilities

Really like your bold brushstrokes and and vibrant colours Diana.

That red is so vibrant and you’ve achieved such a wonderful shine.

Gorgeous luminous colours Diana

They are so good, they look really plump and fresh, and the seeds wow. Such detail

Like this a lot, almost 3D in effect

Thank you Carole. There is so much to explore. I need two work tables now. One for my watercolours and one for oils. Thank you Katy. I know the style of oil painting I hope to achieve but need to work on the basics first. Thank you Anjana. The colours are incredibly intense . I’m finding I need loads are mixing space. Thank you Jennifer. I managed to keep the mess levels down a bit yesterday 😂 Thank you Heather. I am trying something rather adventurous today .... a seascape!

I imagine loads of folks wouldn't mind having this on their wall! Beautifully done, Diana - love the vibrant brushwork and the bold colors.

Beautiful realistic colours, Diana.

Rich, luscious work!

Lovely colours, Diana.

Such a lively painting - its got everything going for it.

Dripping with yummyness Diana! Both in the painting technique and the ripeness of the peppers.

Thank you Seok, Ellen, Thalia, Linda, Chrissie, and Sarah. I’m so sorry that I overlooked all your messages

Hang on Studio Wall

Oil on canvas board. I’ve been learning how oil paint can be applied to canvas board. Lots of experimenting. Not something I’d want on my wall but good exercise subject
