    Great tutorial, I’m considering taking a jump and doing more with oil paints for sure now.
    Question for you though, in the lower right hand corner of the shot, you are rubbing on a round surface. What is that?

      Hi Alex, thanks for watching! it’s well worth learning to work with oil paints, very satisfying when it all comes together. As for the round thing, well that’s a pot of brush soap, I have a bad habit of using whatever is closest as a paint palette.
