warpaint in oils by derekjones warpaint in oils by derekjones
often think I need to use oils for my figure stuff - mainly because it is softer in brushmark but also because it is so much easier to mix flesh colours with them...
so I dug my oils out of the shed and have tried this sketch this morning...
if anyone has thoughts about the relative values of my oils, pastels and acrylics I would be OK to hear them...
here or by email!
