Today I'm going to do something different. A still life in acrylic, just black and white, and then color it with an oil wash. I got instructions from my favorite instructor Wilson Bickford on how to do it. I'm excited about trying it.

I think the darkened background looks good, in fact better than just the white background.

Well I tried out the technique of using an oil wash on top of a black and white acrylic painting. I did this quick and not carefully and I screwed up the background but in general I like the effect and I'm sure I will use it in the future.

Thank you. I'm sure I'll be using the wash technique on other things like background to my portraits and to give extra color to flowers. The wash dries very quickly for oils. The picture I did yesterday is already dried.
