Shape Painting Tutorial
I went through the steps of an online tutorial, Bill Martin’s Guide to Oil Painting. Although, my shapes turned out nothing like his. It was a good exercise in shading.
As you can see by my finger print in the sphere, I have also learned a lesson about how long it takes for oils to dry. I had previously read that it takes about 3 days for oil paints to dry, NOT TRUE! It takes at least a week to be dry to the touch depending on how thick the paint is and I read that it can take up to 6 months for an oil painting to full dry.
