Re: Oil-from-life challenge, July 2018: optional "figure-in-landscape" theme

Those paints do look cool, ronsu. I took a look at their colors at Blick's website.
I'll probably try a tube or two. Are they stiff or smooth in consistency? I prefer a buttery, smooth, soft consistency.

DMA, I mix black sometimes too, but somehow I never get it quite as ... black... as Permalba Black or Mars Black. Also, I'm not wild about using Burnt Umber, as I think it doesn't mix all that well for anything other than black. And Burnt Sienna doesn't make my blacks as black as I like.

You may have a good point with black, Geoff.

Anyways here's my final update. I took many pictures with my tablet and couldn't get it to show nice subtleness in colors. Yes, I could use my camera but I don't have any editing software for it right now so this will have to do.

I hope it's better.
