Angry Cephalopods by Meg Lyman
12×24″ oil on gallery canvas
I couldn’t resist.
A few things I learned doing this painting:
1. You can use pure medium to wipe off wet mistakes, but if you scrub too hard, it takes off dry paint too
2. Sizing with medium is handy when the time between starting a painting and finishing it is, oh, A WHOLE YEAR
3. Oils take time to dry. Waiting several days between applications makes me lose momemtum (see #2)
4. Regardless, I now love oil paint
