Beginners guide to oil painting and demonstration w/ Lachri
Today I’m going to walk you through everything from the supplies I use, to how I blend my paint and even show you how to complete your first oil painting using glazing techniques!
Oil painting has this reputation for being a more advanced medium to work in. People think it’s going to be too hard and everyone’s heard about the trouble with muddy colors. I will let you in on a little secret; Oil painting is one of the easier mediums to work in IF you know how to use mixing medium and when to let your paint dry between layers.
