|5 minute gesture painting, oil on Vellum, 9x12|
|Anders on Tuesday, 14x11, oil on Ampersand Gessobord|
The oil on the vellum slides around with slippery goodness and feels on the verge of out of control. Kind of exhilarating.
On the more sustained piece, I started with a thinned out mixture of burnt umber, more OMS than linseed oil, gradually adding more paint, till I was painting straight out of the tube for the darks.
