Thank you Nancy! I used Richards grid method to draw the truck. It was a really fun challenge.
Thank you, Robin for sharing your knowledge with us.
Robin, thank you for your comment about medium. I can not get walnut oil. So I am using refined linseeds oil. Is anybody tried ordinary vegetable oil? Those we can buy from supermarket? I am very curious. Anyway, I am afraid of acrylic. They dry too quickly. My brain can not catch up with them. Lol.
Thanks for your comments Li. I did struggle with that right hand corner, so maybe I will revisit it and take your suggestion on board. I use acrylics but can't get that thick juicy look that oils produce as they are water based and end up looking quite flat.
Beautiful, Your value to me is very good. The drawing is very well done. It is not easy, the car is beautiful. You must take a lot of time to make the value and tone works. It is a cooler version but the colours are harmonized and very peaceful. Any suggestions? If I were you I would make the upper left conner a bit different colours, now that place looks flat. The frame work of the shelter could have different colour according to their location as Richard did. It would make the shelter more 3 dimention. Your cat is a baby and so cute, Your awning is Superb!!!
So difficult trying to paint with thick strokes while using acrylics as it dries flat. Any suggestions for making the paint "thick and juicy" would be welcomed. I have water based oils but so far have been unable to source walnut oil in small quantities!
