Forest Walk

Family walk in Forest

Family walk in Forest

This painting was done on canvas board. Size 12"x16

Medium oil . It took me ages to do as one has to wait at times for painting to dry between further applications. I love using oil and wanted to try and accomplish something pretty. Please comment and feel free to critique . Thank You all for your input. Cheers Joyce

Lovely
by: Linda W

I have had the same problem with drying. Apparently when we choose to paint on board we are going to be facing a very long dry time. I used a board to paint a picture for a blank family room wall. I painted it 5 months ago and it still is not dry in thickly applied areas. I've been told it's because air can not move through the board to dry it. So I have learned to be very patient as well as to stick to canvas! I have also heard that you can not varnish the painting for six months after you have finished it. Boy, sometimes acrylics really do have an advantage, but I love oils. Your Walk through the Forest is lovely. You are very talented! Good work!

oil paints drying time
by: J.R.

Your problem with the slowness of drying can be resolved by lesrning to work thinly as well as incorporating alkyd mediums into your paint mixtures.I also freely intermix tube alkyd paints made by Winsor& Newton sold as GRIFFIN ALKYD COLOUR Also by appling a small amount of medium first THEN adding pigment manipulative qualities are enhanced.
