#flowerphotochallenge: day 5 of 7, a cyclamen work in progress. Oil paint on 8×8 canvas. This is more materials experimentation – no solvents. Here I’m using my traditional oil paints (Gamblin, Winsor Newton and Williamsburg) with a mix of linseed oil (for a bit more flow) and solvent-free daneridge cold wax (to cut the oil shine); I like the consistency although it will dry more slowly. And I missed Williamsburg Persian Rose while using the miscible paints. This is naturally lit – so hopefully the sun will cooperate later in the week so that I can complete this.
