Painting with WSO

I went on to Will Kemp’s Beginners Still LIfe videos with the WSO sample colors. I wanted to see if I could work with them.  The Slver Goblet showed good reflections and the Grapes and Green Tomato looked good too, even though the chiaroscuro got away from me.

Will Kemp also offers an Advanced Still Life course. I bought it and did this lovely setup. The oranges reflect beautifully in the mahogany table.

There are several other course available on his site. I found him to be a wonderful teacher. You may too. Will Kemp’s Courses.

I painted with the Royal Talens Cobra set of Water Mixable Oils. I got the 10 color set from Dick Blick. You can get the set by clicking the photo.

Water Mixable Oils Discovered

Posted on Categories:still life, WSO

In love with WSO

I use to work with regular oil paints. Because of the solvents, the smell, and the mess, and health risks I stopped. It’s been a dozen years since I have painted.

One of my good friends suggested that I try water mixable oils instead. My reaction was the normal, ‘But oil and water don’t mix!’ She gave me some of hers so I gave them a try.

I used some canvas paper. They worked just like regular oils but no solvents, no smell and they wash up with soap and water. Even if I get a bit on my clothes, I just use a bit of stain remover and pop them in the washer. Presto the clothes are clean.

I’m in love with them. And I’m back to painting, lots of painting.
