Painting Mask I

Mask I. Close-up face. Oilpaint on woodpanel.
Still in process, I'm working on this painting in very thin layers. They are dry within one day.

Mask I. Close-up ring. Oilpaint on woodpanel. (in progress)
The woodpanel is sand down first so the surface is very smooth now. I prepared it with Polyvine to make it smoother, but I'm going to try an acrylic medium next time.
Mask I. Close-up bird. Graphite and oilpaint on woodpanel.
Here you can see how the sketch look like without the paint. To get thin lines of paint I paint a stroke with a small pencil and blend it with another dry brush. This is a nice method.
 Mask I. Close-up of the flowerheels. The heels are inspired by Prada. I saw some Prada heels with flowers on the back but from hard material. These look soft and I think it fits my painting because of all the floral details.
Oilpaint and on the left my favorite medium. I use this to make the paint smoother and it makes your paint dry quicker. It's looks like a gel.


  1. this is amazing, i can never get the paint that thin and when i do, there's residue from the thinner that i use. :(

  2. If you paint a small line with a little brush you mix the oilpaint with a little bit of the Liquin original, this way it floats better. Then you blend it out with a dry brush. Let me know if that works for you :)

  3. This is such a great art work. You are really talented and I absolutely enjoy following your blog.
    Thank you for your nice comment.
    Best wishes,
