No thinners, turpentine, or mediums are needed, nor used during any of this process. Only the original consistency of the oil paint, as derived from the tube is worked with.
Any and all brands are perfectly fine. Use what you can afford comfortably. There is nothing worse than worrying about the cost of art supplies while trying to make your artwork and learn something new.
This principle also applies to brushes and palette knives. All brushes and tools have their purpose and moment during your art practise. I keep all my old brushes, you never know when it might come in handy for a particular detail, spot, or effect.
* Please note that the base coat is acrylic paint, which is dry. It’s primary use is to seal the ready made stretched canvases that you can commonly buy.
They aren’t sealed enough and are quite ‘thirsty’ and absorb the oil from the paint to eagerly, which is not good.
Alternative base colours I use are dark brown and grey.
I’m a father of two lovely boys and am living and working as a painter in Perth, WA. Ever since I can remember I have drawn and painted and told people when I grow up I want to be an artist. It started when I was three years old and scribbled throughout Mums, not quite out of reach, phone-pad. Reinforced itself when I completed my BA – Fine Art Painting from the Victorian College of the Arts and continues to this day. I mainly work with oil paint on canvas applied with palette knives and brushes. My second favourite combination of mediums being watercolours and ink on heavy paper. The main themes that I love to paint and explore in my work are being at the beach, walking through the City, being anywhere while it rains, relaxing at a cafe, or watching boats on the water. This is mainly completed using an Impressionistic approach to appearance, I also experiment in a geometric heavy style borrowing from cubism. People play an important part in my work and are as important as the landscape they find themselves in, this allows me to create narrative and direction for the flow through the image. In 2006 I began working full time as an Artist. Every time I paint I try to better understand why I do what I do and choose the things that I paint, and endeavour to connect to my ideas in a stronger way. I’ve strived to improve my technique every day over the years and continue to, as I still have a long way to go.
Thanks for looking!
