Today i wanted to start my second painting after having watched winters grey multiple times. I don't own a liquid white yet so i made my own with odorless turpentine. I started by covering the canvas with a thin layer (as i did on my previous one) and immediately there were problems.
As soon as i put a little red in the middle the liquid white starts blending in way to much.
The Sky (pink white and black) becomes an almost even color of grey, and you can see exactly the way the brush was pointed.
None of the clouds stay visible after i blend everything together.
So i tried one without the liquid white but then the colors don't blend at all. So i kinda wasted 2 good canvases.
I clean the brushes in turpentine and after in water as well but i dry them before i start blending or painting again.
