Teaching oil painting too, privately – underpainting some lovely teapots

The very very first layer. Sometimes I underdraw, sometimes I don’t. Here I didn’t.

I actually see many similarities between oils and miniature painting. They’re not as different as they first appear. Neither do oils have to be ‘messy’ – there is a lot of preparation and planning, akin to the miniatures, and the idea of layers as well as the more ‘in the moment’ spontaneous decisions.
