Glad to see Sijun is still around... Here's some stuff I've been working on for several years - oil on 4' x 6' panels

The Irreverent Rapture


A Short History of Humanity from the Beginning to the End


The Descent of Water


Custer's Last Stand


The Bemusement of the Ancients


Spirituality...?

It's good to see the series progressing. Some wacky stuff.

You get a very non-oil look out of those oils.

Yep, however when you reduce the paintings from 4 feet by 6 feet to a small image, the oil textures tend to fade away. They are there, but I do tend to smooth the textures out.

As part of the series, I also do separate smaller portraits of some of the characters in the paintings. I'll post some of them in a separate post.

Thanks for posting all the new stuff!

When I did a little oils work I tended to use just a little paint on the brush and scrub it on, so it had no brush marks, or very few.
I don't think I was doing that on purpose, that's just the way I naturally did things with no formal training.

I don't do much scrubbing-- I use very small synthetic sable brushes and fan brushes to smooth things out - generally just one coat of paint, but over a digital drawing printed out on heavy acid free paper and mounted on a panel with acrylic matte medium sizing the paper before oil painting. Here's one of the digital drawings that I painted over:

Nope... haven't used drugs for forty years, but I'm told I have a good memory...
