Oil Painting-facial expressions

"Your first oil painting won't be your best, but it'll be your most important one." This is what I tell my students when we start working with oils. I explain some of the similarities between oil pastels (what they used the previous year in MS) and paints such as the ability of mix colors together. I might have mentioned in another post that when we work with oils, make sure the room is well ventilated, wear gloves and use a vegetable oil to clean and thin the paints. The solvents in Egypt will zap the brain cells. 

Creating color swatches.
All together now.
