The Joker Oil Painting :: Part 3 (WiP)
Posted on October 28 2010
Another huge learning experience from my last attempt. Built up a lot more contrast, finally had a bit more courage to just attack the canvas rather than let the paint take over. I watched so many youtube oil painting tutorials and time lapses that it helped build up my confidence to do this better. Also discovered some really good oil painters who's art helps to guide me as to what I'm doing with this medium. I'm really having fun now and there's still a few more steps before I'll be completely happy with the results. My biggest problem is the drying time, I don't know if I can sell or be commissioned to do oil paints as it's suppose to take 6 months for the paint to dry completely. I'm sure I'll figure something out though so I can get this and other pieces into your living rooms or bedrooms.
