1856 House

Inspired to take out my water mixable oils after years in a box, I am taking a trip to crazy town tonight!  I thinned down the wash layer with water, and brushed it on like one would use turpentine.  I wiped off what I didn't want in there, and added minimal color with a soft brush.  I forgot to oil the panel first, so the paint started drying to a tack very quickly.  These paints are made by Holbein and will work with oil or water,  and really are a different animal!  I let them drip, but I'll need a little practice here, and went for a vintage photo feel.  I know, pretty crazy, but every painting is a lesson, after all!  Painting number 1670 in 1670 days.
