Hand refined linseed oil.


Assorted, quick figure studies today, drawn from imagination. Trying to accomplish twelve things at once: I'm just getting to the end of Ernst Van De Wetering's book, Rembrandt: The Painter At Work, a great inquiry into the artist's Materials and working methods; getting my lines of the day down on paper; updating the blog; and learning the process of preparing my own linseed oil in preparation for making my oil paints.

Things are progressing, but it seems like there is so much to learn and so little time.
