    Hi all.
    After finishing the white dog I were thinking hardly - what next?
    I think I'm kind of ok with animals,but I feel weak regarding the people portraits...
    So I've chosen my niece again, as she's so adorable and I have lots of photos to choose from ;)
    I hope I do paint her well,unless I'll cross with her mum and my wife as well, lol :)

    12"/16" oils on canvas board.

    - I've blocked the background with burnt umber, traced outlines and softly established shapes with burnt sienna.

    I were establishing some background tones, and some light on the hair...
    That's it for today :)

    A quick update dear friends.
    I'm trying carry on daily sessions,but the progress isn't very noticeable.
    I'm slowly improving all around.
    Thank you for watching.

    For oil, you’re progressing remarkably quickly with this piece. Looking great! What mediums do you use?

    It's very kind of you.
    I have chosen Winsor&Newton ALKYD Franc.
    I think I couldn't use any other - due to long drying time... :)

    Good call. One thing I've never really figured out with oil is the use of the actual oils and thinners to be added as a medium... do you use linseed oil, safflower oil, or a Winsor prepared medium, or any special thinner?

    That's correct Franc.
    I went for fast drying set,starting from paint ending on mediums...
    I did stick to only one manufacturer,W&N provides it's all.
    They call it Liquin that's replacing the standard linseed oil, and they have low odour solvent as well.
    The advantage of using fast drying paint and medium,is that I don't have to be too worry regarding fat over lean rule as well.
    This is what made me to start with oils.
    The standard long drying oils have not as much benefits, and it would kill me waiting for them to dry between the sessions ;)
    Best regards Franc.

    I heard of Liquin but never had the chance to use it. Really looks like a good medium!

    You know I'm just starting with oils, I haven't use any other oil paints or linseed oils at all, so I can't compare them for you.
    After 15 years of painting with oils you must know everything about ;)
    I have started with those fast drying oils, I bet there wasn't such thing back 15 years Franc?
    I'm enjoying them very much.
    The oil is high quality paint, drying quickly, I can painting frequently on daily basis.

    What else could I wish for :)

    Some more progress to share with you dear friends ;)
    I think I'm done regarding the flesh tone, I'm continuously improving the hair and the details around.
    I think,that the final is not too far away.
    Thank you for watching.
