What did you use to prime the canvas/board/whatever? White paint, bottled primer, etc.? I’m doing a painting of a bat for part of my Art project and I’m thinking of using oils, yet I’ve never used them before. ; u ; Great work, by the way!!
ahh thank you!! oils are fantastic for blending colors and many other things, just make sure when you’re using solvent to thin out the paint that you use it sparingly after the first under coat b/c it can take away from the paint’s shiny finish! (also keep your work space well ventilated…)
and we used white gesso! the board we’re working on is plain matte board, nothing fancy (but it’s thick enough that it doesn’t warp or anything) and you gotta use a huge brush and make a very even, thin coating. make sure to completely cover the surface! then wash your brush off quickly so the gesso doesn’t harden in the bristles ;v;
Emma are you real

i finished this monochromatic oil painting of an osprey (for my intro to painting class) this afternoon and i’m very proud of it ;v;
We have our life and our honor! Wake up! We’ve been sleeping too long!
inspired by the film mihai viteazul (michael the brave) which everyone should totally check out because it has english subtitles and holy shit this guy was a badass
"…and his eyes are greeted by the most atrocious handwritten Romanian he’s seen in ages. Misshapen letters, forgotten accents, words spelled correctly only to have been crossed out and hastily scrawled in again, this time in error, all hallmarks of the beginner scribe.
Any fears he had have been banished by the sloppy penmanship, the efforts of a young boy who has finally taken to writing after so long.” (x)
from the most adorable fic by madredhattie because wow my heart just melted
i’m afraid we didn’t find any subtitled versions, so we had to make do with watching the film without them, unfortunately.
((btw i’m currently in the middle of watching a film about mihai viteazul (michael the brave) and it DOES have english subtitles, if you’re interested, anon))
needless to say, the whole thing is a fucking goldmine for historical uniforms, references, inspiration - you name it
