Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Little bit of a hiccup with the art supplies. They were delivered to a collection point but I wasnt told about it. Several emails bac and forth and we resolved it and I have now got a couple of large tubes of Lemon Yellow Pthalo Blue some oil medium and varnish.

Now I just need to paint

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Becca I do admire how you seem to bare your emotions in your paintings. They seem very personal without ever giving too much away.

I know it is you in the painting I just dont know if you are getting dressed, getting undressed, revealing or covering up, if you are alone or with someone.

I do get a feeling of melancholic in a lot off your work like its flash back rather than in the present. But perhaps that makes them even more beautiful

Lovely.

Do please keep going

Mark, such lovely words...and it is good to know the ambiguity is successful...that is important ... have a few more I want to get to, will see if I can soon....there, I said it...will likely keep going...! though winter is best time I have for painting, something about those long grey days allows more time for it.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Hey everyone! I'm on vacation, and oil paints are waiting for me at home. I've just finished a copy of my grandfather's watercolour. The original is 38 years old, so I couldn't help but boost my colours thinking it was that way before.

30x40 cm. paper. I've also bought cheap Russian made study grade watercolours, Sonnet. Weird, they still use fugitive pigments even in costlier artist grade paints.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Mark, I'm glad the paint delivery issue was resolved. I'm sure you're like me and there's always such an eagerness to get your hands on those new paints so it's hard to wait. Just curious: what mediums do you use? How are you healing up from the injury?

Becca, I'm glad you're back at it painting-wise! I don't think I've ever mentioned it, but I'm always intrigued by the way you paint hair - so loose but it really tells the story. I also often see a bit of melancholy in your self portraits, but that's perfectly OK.

Hey, Ilya, really nice work! You might want to also post it in the Cityscapes or Landscapes forums! Happy vacation!

I'm busy with class and catching up with a lot of tasks I've put off.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Thank you! I know there are other forums but somehow I feel at home here. Trying oils last year improved my skill with other mediums and raised my motivation, so... just paying respect.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

I was so unhappy with a variety of things about this one, I spent part of my day reworking it...I'm happier with it...the ref had been as I originally painted it, and may have been interesting effect for a photo but I loathed it on canvas...

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Annie I am using a Michael Harding oil painting medium

The hand is healing thanks but I still cant clench a fist as yet and it still feels very stiff. It can take up to a year apparently.

On the plus side I am painting loads so I am not letting it slow me down on that front

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Thank you Mark...glad you are painting a lot...and doing well with it too from what I'v seen..

I'v been painting a lot too, and opposed to what I typically do, I went back to two and made changes to the effect I like them more now...others seem to as well...

I'm anxious to see how they look once curing has had a chance to occur
