Wrapped in Thoughts Oil Painting

Wrapped in Thoughts is 40 x 50 cm.
Before I start any painting I make a sketch on A4 paper, then I sketch the result with charcoal on the canvas.

The first layer of oil paint is thin and I usually let it dry for couple of hours, even a day.
I add couple of layers to build in all shapes.

For this painting I used Linseed Oil - Boiled as medium mixed with a drop of  Lukas 2218 to thin the oil.

Lukas thinner helps the colors dry faster.
It is known that the linseed oil gives a yellowish tint in time, but used with thinner I didn't got that problem.


And I managed to compress some recordings into a video. :)
