At last class we focussed on painting a composition near eye-level. This setup had a nice tablecloth that draped nicely in tonal contrast.
It’s been over 30 year since I attempted oil painting (a couple of landscape classes). After figure drawing these past couple of years I thought it time to try it again. This first still life on canvas pad is painted not using any solvents (turpentine, etc.). Our instructor has shown those of us using oils to use linseed oil only and soap and water for cleaning. I do not mind at all skipping the solvents!
