Day 3: Still Life馃帹 (contd.)

RECAP:聽In part one, I built my still life composition from the ground up using objects I collected and finished with the base layer and sketch.

Initially I had planned to do a base completely in acrylic (picture above) and then finish in oil, but halfway through, I realized that I鈥檓 wasting my time with acrylics so I jumped straight to oil. The comparison and results of working with oil verses acrylic is unreal. See for yourself鈥

So far, I鈥檓 happy with my progress in this painting as I have only been working on it for about 10聽to 12聽hours at this point. If there is anything working with acrylic paint has taught me, it is speed. With everything currently on canvas, I had to take a break to allow everything to 鈥渄ry鈥.

Fun fact: Oil Paints do not dry, in fact they oxidize,聽hence why they have a much longer 鈥渄rying time鈥. Typically once an oil painting is finished, it can take up to 6 -聽12聽months to completely oxidize (this also depends on the layers and thickness of layer).

Stay tuned for the final step鉁

Have a blessed day!
