Hello all, just wanted to post my try out after Sargent's painting of Loeffler the violinist painted in 1903.
It's been a long while since I found some time to paint again and I wanted to try out working with Cobra water miscible oils. I found them quite nice but -at least in my experience- the tended to get "spotty" when thinning with too much water. I have used a limited palette (titanium white, pyrrole red, ultramarine blue, burnt umber, primary/cadmium yellow), but I am unsure whether I like the result. The painting does not feel tied together although I thought using a limited palette may aid in that, as well as making sure all proportions are correct which I checked prior to the work.
Would definately appreciate all feedback and suggestions to produre some more "tied together" work.
Thanks in advance!
