Update on the small paintings I’ve been working on since the new year (mentioned HERE). Each has been approached differently with the only constraint being a pink base coat. I brought myself a selection of 20 Michael Harding oil tubes over Christmas (££), the first time I’ve tried out quality paints and so far so good, the colours are much more vivid than I’m used to due to a higher pigment/oil ratio compared with cheaper student quality paints. Also with a wider range of colours my palette has expanded considerably, something I’m willing to do but conscious of keeping more regular darker tones in the mix. More to follow..
