Hey everyone, I am a bit confused, or uncertain about using painting mediums.
I noticed Richard using some walnut oil, so I got some to try. I have read so many different things about medium, but most people talk about how it makes the paint dry faster. I am interested in making the paint flow, or be thinner like Richard thins his darks. I guess my concern is using too much or not knowing when to use paint thinner instead of oil medium. I hear people say to paint thick on thin or fat on lean ( I think).
I Know I am not worried about the longevity of my pictures at this point, but I would like to understand the principles behind using these. I don't want to do something that will cause my paint not to dry, or to be runny.
Can anyone give me a few guidelines? Thank you ( =
