Hey guys, here's a question for all the oil-painting dudes over here!
looking especially at shawn barbers artwork it can obviously be noticed that he often lets the paint just run down the canvas (today I noticed that Kim Cogan does this as well).
see the red and green on the left :
so my question is how can you dilute oil paint this extremely and still have an almost full-opacity brushstroke?? Tried this today and got kinda frustrated because every time I mixed my oils with medium/turpentine until I got a nice brushflow, opacity got lost almost completely making the paint nice for glazing but not to reach the wished effect.
Some advice would be cool, and if I am just not seeing rightly please correct me and kick my ass
