The journey of each of my paintings twists and turns so much that I thought you might like to watch the morphing of Canvas #12: In the Shadow of His Wings. Enjoy!

    Thanks Leona! I have decided to do this for each painting, so that I (and others) can see how each painting develops. I find that I am learning quite a lot by being able to review my own process.

      it depends on how thick you apply it. if your apylnipg it impasto style quite thickly. then it can take literally years to dry. you can speed this up though by adding structura, i have managed to get oil paint almost 1/4 of an inch thick dry in two days using this method. though there is a knack to it. too much structura and it will crack quite badly.also if your painting thinly with a brush, use white spirit to thin the paint, as this evaporates quickly your painting will dry much quicker, if you use linseed oil. it will stay wet for a very long time.I have used linseed oil on pencil and charcoal drawings on paper. which is still wet 10 years on.

        Amazing…10 years?! My Mum kept small tubes of oil paint stored for more years than I could imagine, and they were still usable (not great, but usable). Thanks for the tips!
