I'd like to ask for some further explanation of this method we are using (Mark's method). If we are to avoid "blending" as a general rule while painting, why do we go to the lengths that we do in order to keep the paint from drying? I'm guessing that our technique is by nature slower and the little "bumps" (mark's term) that we make require wet paint? Could someone elaborate a bit on how we are using the slow dry factor to our advantage? Keep in mind that I'm an oil paint beginner, please.
