My first oil painting for ten years

It looks a bit goofy now, but that’s easy to fix. I would have used a canvas board but this is about sorting out the best brushes and colours. Some of the tubes of oil paint are a bit hard; one had to be chucked out.

I’m trying to follow the pattern used in recent acrylic painting – 1, ground; 2, tonal underpainting; 3, colour warmth underpaint. 4 overpaint…

Next layer will be linseed oil instead of Turpentine. I have found a tube of bright pthalo green, that’ll be fun.

There goes the pthalo green.
Finished, I looks a bit pale in this shot.
