    So I got the idea from Seedling of spending an hour a day doing a study with oils. I want to get used to using them, and this made sense. I could already see improvement on hers after a few days.

    This is my first one. I read something later today about using less medium than what I used here so I'm going to try that. And also I did a quick undercoating for tomorrow's study so I wont be painting on blank canvas.

    I think I did much better today. I spent time thinking about the colors and mixing them before I started.

    This seems alright. I had some trouble with the shiny gray.

    Thanks for the comments! It's motivational. Here's today's. I think the problem I had was the small size of this painting, I don't have a good brush to use for the details. Basically yellow ochre with some gray, and what I guessed at was the blueish underpainting would make it a little greenish. Not quite sure if that is correct. Mixed some raw umber in there for shadows.

    I'm not sure why, but this pencil sharpener kicked my ass.

    I went to my parents house for a few days and forgot my brushes. Oh well. Here's one for the 22.

    A teabag package, sans lettering. I ran out of time.

    Another painting a day thread!

    I have a question. I thought of it later though, so this picture is a little different than what I painted.

    Another painting a day thread!

    Anyway the base color for the package I used Viridian green, and the question I have is about the brightly lit area. To lighten it is increasing the value and the saturation? Anyway I was having a hard time getting it to be as bright as I wanted, I was adding yellow with some white. Is that appropriate?

    Of course its right, if it looks right. But welcome to the number one problem of oil painting, hell, painting in general:

    How to raise the value of a colour without losing saturation. Hint, you mostly can't, although the cadmiums are useful for this. A drop in saturation of everything else is often in order, to give the correct appearance.

    Looking great! About the lack of little brush: that's actually a good thing. It'll help you get into the habit of using the biggest brush you can possibly squeeze details out of.

    The closest off-the-shelf color to the tea bag in the photo would be Sap Green I think, but mixing Cadmium Yellow Light should do it.
    Anyways these are looking good, keep it up, nothing you could ever do will help you more than this practice.

    What palette do you use sease? I only ask because reaching for more tube colours is not what you want to be doing in order to learn. I myself only use 5 colours at the minute. I feel like I know them through and through because of this, and its a liberating feeling!

    Actually, I just sort of look at whatever I'm going to paint, and then choose some colors that seem appropriate. But I do try to really limit them to just a few for whatever object. That's a good idea though, it makes sense. In a way that's what I was trying to accomplish by painting simple objects, is learn each color better.
