Work in Progress – Oil painting

A work in progress. I decided to try using oil paints since it is similar to Acrylics. I love the ability to walk away from the painting and come back to blend the paints. When using acrylics, you have a limited time to move the paints around since the paints dry so quickly. More so when you live in the high desert of Oregon.

I am using a mixture of Zen oil paints , their Infinity oil palette set, which the owner claims in non-toxic, and 12 Shades of Grey oil paints that I purchased at Jerry Artarama art store. Both decent oil paints with deep pigments. I also purchased a few tubes of water soluble paints from Windsor Newton. Makes for great clean-up with soap and water. So that I don’t have to use turpentine for brush clean up, I found out that I can clean the traditional oil paints with oil (vegetable or olive oil) and follow up with dish soap.
