Hello all, I wonder if someone here can advise me about a couple of questions thats so simple to many yet very confusing to me. >>> (have my learner plates on)
(Background) - I am a self taught painter, who has always painted in Water colour and gouache. I have zero knowledge of oils. (time for a change) I have always had a big interest in oils, but have been put off using them because of a lack of understanding the method. ( soooo happy to have found Marks site, ) - while researching.
I have decided to give oils my full attention for the next six months.
I have purchased Artisan oils WMO ( because im sensitive to turps etc )- im confused about WHEN & HOW to use (mediums e.g. Linseed, safflower, stand and also >painting medium).
Can someone please explain to me the use sequence etc of using these products? ^^^^
Also - how do we measure Fat over lean? I read each top layer must be fatter?
I sincerely thank you all in advance for any help or suggestions you may give that can help me with these two questions.
