Oil drybrush

December 29, 2021

This is a new technique that I am playing with. It's exactly what it sounds like. Oil paint applied incredibly sparingly, brushed onto paper. 

You can even erase the paint with an eraser, just like you would pencil or charcoal.

It's a learning curve to find the right combination of smooth paper, soft yet strong brushes, and ''dryness"

But as with everything else art-related, each piece teaches me something and helps me grow.
