My friends and I will be having an exhibit this November at the Ayala Museum to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our organization – Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan. I had a difficult time figuring out what to do. In the end, I just really wanted to make a painting about something personal.
Work in progress.
I wanted to do an oil painting this time around after working with acrylics for the past few months. But the solvents used in oil painting usually fill the house with a strong, sharp odor. So I tried doing the next best thing.
I tried using mater-mixable oils! These paints are pretty nifty little innovations. Water is enough to clean the paints and I just a painting medium to help in spreading the paint.
I think I’ll use more of these water-mixable oils in the future.
