6x8 oil on RayMar Panel
When something isn't working, try something different. I had been working on a pastel landscape. I did multiple versions of it on different surfaces. They were all ok but none were great and they were not getting better. I hung them all so I could evaluate and I put the pastels away.
This is an oil study based on Kelli Folsom's video on painting metallic objects. I watched it for the third time while I painted along with her. She doesn't use OMS to mix her paints or clean her brushes, just wipes down with a paper towel. This is also the first time I used oil primed linen and I could not believe how easily the paint moved around. These are definitely techniques I will use again!
