And more water lilies

A new post in some time. I did paint, but not very much of what I ended up liking. Did I say I love water lilies before? At any rate, here they are again.

In the meantime, I also had the chance to try three different brands of water-miscible oil paints: Winsor & Newton’s Artisan, Royal Talens’ Cobra Artist and Holbein’s Duo Aqua Oil. Despite reading great critiques of Holbein’s paints, I liked them least because they were the most difficult to clean and, frankly, this is likely to be the only reason to use water-miscibles at all. My favourites are Royal Talens Cobra paints despite the long drying times. Has anyone¬†been trying different water miscible paints, too?

Water Lilies

I love water lilies. True, they are not very original, nor can I paint them well, but here I am trying to paint water lilies for the fourth time. I think I made a thousand photos of water lilies in Bali, so I am well stocked with reference material for 2017. Oil on canvas, 30cm x 40cm.
