Oil Painting

Oil paint is very thick directly out of the tube, and must be made thinner for the first layers using white spirits or turpentine, and a blending medium such as linseed oil or coconut oil for later layers. Once you’ve mastered the basic techniques, the world is your canvas! A combination of colors like cadmium yellow, yellow ocher, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, titanium white, and mars black, you can make any hue on the color wheel.
