I got punished for starting without asking Nolan  :-\ I started with oil. And I did not understand that I would not paint the white areas.  :doh: Now I am looking at the paint without knowing what to do with a dirty canvas in my hand. Should I close it with white paint?
And the most important thing is how to make glaze with oil?  :pullhair:

you should be able to lift out the few dirty spots by using clean turps (if using traditional oil) or water (if using WaMO)

If it is already dry, just leave it O0

The zebra looks great so far :clap: :clap: :clap:

I am assuming you are painting using traditional oils and not WaMO so just add a little paint to your medium in order to get a glaze, then paint as per the video instructions. In other words you start with a pile of medium and then add paint to it and not the other way around O0

Thank you very much for your answer, Nolan. I cleaned the canvas. I use Winsor Newton and Van Gogh paint, linseed oil and turpentine (just for clean the brushes). I will try the way you say.

My oil painting Zebra.  I used turp and 50% linseed oil for glazing. Red and blue appear lighter in the photo. They are actually more darker in the original. Actually i didn't like yellow much.  :-\  I wish, I mixed cadmium yellow and yellow ochre. What do you think?

Looks good.  How do you like working with the water-soluable oils?

I think a more shadowy yellow would look better.

Great job. :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
I like the yellow. This painting is meant to have some brighter colours in it, hence the yellows, pinks, etc.
