Okay, I can't put it off any longer. I have to actually paint.
I want vibrant colours so chose simple bright oils - titanium white, cadmium yellow, cadmium red, french ultra marine and prussian blue (Daler-Rowney Georgian). All mixed with Liquin Original (Windsor and Newton), which greatly speeds up the drying time.
Firstly I lay down quite simple colours, all of this will be worked on to add detail and depth.
Honestly this bit is almost paint by numbers. Maybe not the explosions. A small part of the reason for doing this blog is to show that this is not as complicated as people think. Like a lot of things it is mostly about doing it rather than talking about doing it.
That said I guess I should be... erm... doing it.
