My second oil on canvas in many years! (see the “Lion, Dragon, Domo and Snake” for the first one.)
I am very happy with the richness of the colors. My acrylics take many, many glazes to reach the same appearance.
A neighbor gave me some stuffed animals and I am arranging them to suit my 2021 mood.
I am using no solvents, the paint has enough oil in it. I am rubbing thin paint layers onto the canvas as if I was using pastel, which gives the work a fun, furry look. This piece has a protective layer on it, but to be safe, I will need to varnish it in about six months (May 2022).
