Thanks for yesterday's class! It was eye-opening to see George work so confidently in both watercolour and oil.
I've been wanting to try oils for ages but didn't know quite how to start. After watching George's demo I felt really compelled to make a dive for it. I used a limited palette of Burnt Sienna, Sap Green and Titanium white as suggested and it turns ut oils isn't as scary as it seemed. Thinking in values was prompted by the limited palette and changes in temperature easy to achieve as you simply choose to mix a little bit more or a little bit less of one or the other colour. The temperatures are made up here based on what looked okay, but I would be curious to hear some opinions on that since I have little theory to back it up.
Compared to digital painting I found myself thinking ahead a lot more since each stroke is relatively more cumbersome to make. In the end this was quite satisfying since you seem more efficient, well... at least when things go right.
Judging by yesterday's chat I wasn't the only one who felt compelled to break out the watercolours and the oils. Post your pieces people!
