Wiping Oils and Supporting Artists

This is my fifteenth oil painting. It originally began as something else, I decided to wipe it and do this. Oils are very nice like that, just wipe and begin again. I've since done another painting, and decided in the end to wipe it too, but I was out of time and haven't begun again. I don't plan on making this a regular practice, but it is a nice backup when things go awry.

Have you heard about International Artists Day? Thanks to Alyson Stanfield for the heads up. Essentially, it is a day to celebrate art and those who create it. Think about how you might take part. I, for one, have big plans for the day...details coming soon!

Yes oils are very forgiving really, I don't know why they get a name for being difficult. As you say, just wipe the bit you don't like off and start again (or the whole thing if you wish). This looks great!

Nice, Rose. We will be waiting to see what goes on on International Artists Day.

This one is great Rose. Wiping can be good. I do it lots myself.
