The largest one I have done for a long while and took me almost 2 weeks to complete, but I learned a lot in the process. The next one is going to be a close up of 3 roses from a beautiful bunch that are adorning my kitchen table at the moment.
I've noticed that the price of oil paints seems to have crept up a lot, especially the cadmiums. I'm thinking of investing in larger tubes as they are more economical but the outlay on purchase is rather daunting, maybe I'll just buy one at a time. I'd like to know what they put in the student grade paints to make them cheaper, I know that they often use cheaper pigments, but what else! I use mainly Winsor and Newton artist grade oil paint and a few tubes in their 'Winton' range (student)
