Thanks so much everyone for your nice comments. It gives me hope ! I’m so aware of all the really talented artists here and I sometimes feel so lacking in my own ability. I was watching Mark’s video yesterday about oiling our a painting and I was wondering if anyone can tell me when you need to oil out and why. I think it’s because the darks have lost their intensity and this is a way of restoring it. I notice that my darks have lost their intensity and the painting did look a lot better when the darks were wet. Do I need to oil it out or will the darks be restored when I varnish it ?
Without this forum I don’t think I’d be able to keep trying to improve. I find the artists here inspirational , and so generous with their time and expertise. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. We are lucky to have this space.
Ηilary I think this painting is one of the best you ever posted! Love the mood, well done!
