I was using my new water mixable oils, had read you cannot mix them with water. I don't know where that idea came from, but I hadn't read those directions (?) when I started using them. It looks like it works fine, I used them about like watercolors in the back, got them totally liquid and dripped them onto the panel, tipping it this way and that to get interesting flow patterns.

That is Heathcote's Jacaranda tree to the right, its in bloom now and very pretty. The gardens look very lovely right now, flowers everywhere.
I used the w.m. oils like watercolors, thinned down with plenty of water and also as oils applied thickly. When the paint is thinned down its very transparent and has that glow to it that watercolors can have. I just used a couple of brushes on this one and didn't use my knife.
The painting is 8 x 8 inches, special price of $150.

This one started with the trees and then grass, added the ravens and it still looked like it needed something. There was kind of a shadow where the fox was so I added him in.
