Underwater Scene + Hand Painted Christmas Card in Oil

Well, This is my first underwater painting. There is more I would like to do to it but I am satisfied for now. I can always try another one. The title is Lonely Pearl http://i44.tinypic.com/15ojpfk.jpg And this is a Christmas card I had done for a friend of mine. After finishing it, I had realized t...

Re: Choosing the Right Varnish?

That's alright , don't worry about it.

I find it quite amusing how more the two dozen people have viewed this page and yet only one responds. I guess the people who viewed know nothing about oil painting.

Choosing the Right Varnish?

So I have done some research in regards to the best varnish that suits you, that being said, I am still in debate over the best option. My oil paintings have a habit dulling or "sinking" which in that case I would use an Alkyd to bring the pigments back out and show the lushness of the pai...

Re: First Underwater Oil Painting- Second Stage

That would be a small pearl, its not finished yet. I have to wait for the pearl to dry to add the glaze for more shadow and shine.
I think I need to make the sand overlap it a bit more though. I will try to add in more objects but im unsure of what I could put in.

And thank you

First Underwater Oil Painting- Second Stage

Here is an update on my underwater painting, I have a habit of black washing entire sections to redo them if I am not satisfied with the look. But I needed to do this to work wet on wet and spent about three hours creating the sand, an hour of that spent create the pearl. Surprisingly it is almost f...

First Underwater Oil Painting

This is something I have been wanting to experiment with for a while now and have finally found the time to do so. I have the background the way I want it, though I will be adding in sun rays coming through the surface. As for the bottom, I am using a series of glazing layers to construct the sand r...

Re: Can this picture be saved?

Well the foundation of the painting is there in my perspective and I am assuming this is in acrylic. I dont know too much about acrylic techniques due to me only working in oils but I do have an interesting idea. Since the layout is on the canvas already you could start using oil paint over top of t...

Luminous Thought- Oil Landscape

Hello ASC members I had done this painting a short while ago on my first large scale canvas, honestly there was quite a bit of trial and error with this one. Though I did learn a lot during the process. http://i42.tinypic.com/2wdx1f6.jpg If anyone can suggest a way to properly photograph an oil pain...

Re: A New Creation - Oil Painting

Thank you all very much , I am glad you like them. I was hesitant with a few parts in the landscape, the bridge especially considering I never attempted a structure before. Basically I was going for a scene where the light source was directed towards the center, leaving the two sides in near darknes...

A New Creation - Oil Painting

Hello ASC Here is my latest oil painting that I have done for the 2013 Gamblin Torrit Grey Competition. I have to say I enjoyed creating this landscape with only the use of Torrit Grey (with Ivory and Titanium). I chose to give it the title Forgotten Memory, with the grey scale look, it feels as if ...

Creating a birthday card with oil paint

So I have been wanting to paint a birthday card for a dear friend of mine that lives a few provinces over from me and will have to be mailed. But since I paint in oils, I am having second thoughts. Just because I do not know how the oils will react in a plain envelope and have it travel a long dista...

Re: The Flow of Water

Thank you , I didnt think the waterfall was very good . Just because I couldnt get the flow like I wanted it to be , before I started on it, the canvas was completely black with acrylic and had put a thin layer of oil on it so the paint would glide smoothly. Unfortunately I waited alittle too long a...
