Every oil painting has a challenge, whether it is the composition, technique, or color. In this week’s oil painting tutorial, the challenge is patience. If you do not want a pink mess, you must:
- paint in layers, which means you have to let the previous layer dry.
- then use a glazing oil painting technique and
- use the oil painting technique called scumbling.
If you painted the Chocolate Cake painting, you already know a bit about scumbling and glazing (if you missed it, click here). Well, there is power in repetition, the more you practice it, the more you’ll begin to recognize when will be a good time to use it. And once you gain that wisdom of when to use the techniques, you’ll be able to see yourself paint the painting 3 steps ahead of where you are right now.
