Portrait Painting Tutorial | Water Mixable Oil Paint

In this week’s portrait painting video we will explore water mixable (also known as water soluble) oil paints. These paints are a very fun to work with and very easy to clean up. To add a little twist, we will be using cooking oil as a medium for fun (please use refined linseed oil if you are concerned with the longevity of your paintings).
