Left + Right Handed Painting


I love oils now. The turpentine and linseed oil used to make me sick but now I’m usingWinsor & Newton’ water-based oils. They work just like oils except water is replaced with turpentine. In fact, they ARE regular oils just chemically changed to break down with water. I paint with their “water mixable oil painting medium” to thin the paint out a little. No fast drying mediums since it dries pretty fast anyway. 70% lefty then right hand in the end for details.

The first two figure paintings are master studies based on the drawings of several well know artists. I misplaced their names but I’ll find them and update this soon. The last one was done using a photo reference I found online. 

Thanks for stopping by!
