I often feel that I lack something crucial as have not been to Art College. I try to compensate it by learning through books.I am doing some exercises from the books and this is one of them. I was also tired of thick galkyd I have been using for a long time and was looking for a change. The medium I have used here is 2 parts linseed oil, 1 part stand oil and 1 part mineral spirits. I call it Solution no. I.
I have not been trying to be van-goghish here, blame it on my new solution. It was liberating to use this one. Also I used a thick panel instead of canvas. Hope you like it.
