module 2: Properties of oil paint.


Welcome to Module 2 of Painting The Figure In Oil. 

In this module, I explain some of the properties of oil paint that make it different from other mediums. There are specific properties of oil paint that need to be learned in order to to make sure that it's handled correctly, so that whatever you create with it will last generations if that is what you desire.

Also in this module, we'll get into handling the oil paint and learning things about how colors interact with each other. It will be a good primer for when we start to work with the paint to make pictures.


We will make some charts that will help you not only understand how our colors actually work with each other, but it will also teach you a lot about some of the tools that we use with oil paint.
