Shades of Grey

tpaxatb 09 Jan 2023

I did this with Burnt Umber instead of gray. I really like the look but I used a white that was WAY too creamy and was fighting it all afternoon (I actually almost gave up)



Looks Good . The old Problem with white . Which one do you use? After trying a couple of Brands i prefer WN. Winton but you have to dry it like others too 😎

I used the WN Winton (the one with a silver band). I grabbed a tube of the artist’s grade to try. I think ill ise the Winton for mixing in the future. *shrug*

The other colours you can try are daler rowney and van Gogh 😎

I heard good things about van gogh linseed. In the meantime I will see if tge cardboard trick works. The Bob Ross brand I don’t mind, I just don’t find tge white “pops” enough. I just atarted so have some canvas boards I can practice on 😎

Look in some old Videos of bill Alexander and diane André it helps .in old times the artists dry the Paint on a staple of newspaper Sites , sometimes over Night . I try this , (1,5 - 2 Hours ) and it works.. the Bob Ross original Paint in Germany is very oily ,Specialy the Titanium white ,that brouhgt me to the other Brands . Hope my Englisch is okay 😎

Your English is fine. The Bob Ross tubes I have had were pretty firm. Heck this was only like my seventh painting I am still working on my consistency. So it’s just a matter of time and practice.
