Hi Paint Basket team and community. I painted this in water mixable oils and enjoyed it a lot. However, I kept staining the sky and had to paint over it and it remains a bit murky. Is it possible to remask the flower when it is dry and redo the sky? I am a beginner, so any feedback appreciated.

Just wait until the painting is dry then you can paint over it. Just remember to add more oil than the first time around to ensure the top layer doesn't crack O0

If you haven't mention the muddying of the sky, I would have tough it was done purposely to contrast with the brighter colours of the flower.   Very nice painting  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Bill,
You can start with just 3 primary and Ti white, before you invest in a third medium.   

I like my oil very much, because of the longer drying (yes, I know curing) time and because my M Graham oil are very very smooth. 

But I don't like working WMO (Windsor & Newton).  I find the texture 'gummy'.   As for the smell, my oil are less offensive to my nose than my WMO.   What is offensive is mostly the turp.   Saying that I avoid all turn, including the odorless turp, because it scares me more to think I may be breathing dangerous fumes and not know it.  When it stink, you know.
Cheers, Annie

I am currently testing a painting and clean up method to not use turp so that there is no harmful chemicals and odours in the staudio and will teach everybody about it in a while after I am sure it works effectively - so far so good :clap:

Thanks for your feedback everyone. Much appreciated. I look forward to hearing about the 'no turps' technique, Nolan.
