Today i was enjoying the sunshine outside, and did the painting on the veranda.
I use oil paint. I like it a lot, because it blends so nice.
I haven’t taken any pictures, because this process really isn’t any good if i take pictures.
You need to experiment yourself.
Just one important thing, take very little paint onto the brush and brush off on a piece of tissue.
brush off till nearly nothing comes off anymore, and then take the first stroke on the fabric.
It is not enough ? do the same thing again … maybe - just maybe - brush off a tiny bit less.
Remember, you can always put on more, but what is on, is very hard to get off again.
Here you can compare - 1 side without and one side with painting
