Ok, I know it takes years of practice to learn to paint. I don't expect to be able to paint in a week. Never actually tried oil painting, apart from pushing round some raw umber in a kind of ebauche for life drawing. But my Mentor wants me to do a piece of work that reflects what I want to be doing in a year or two.
So I was thinking maybe stick to a limited palette. Cad red, Yellow ochre, ivory black and titanium white. I think those are the colours? Or is it lamp black? Does anyone know any resources, on the web, that I can try to pick up the basics of approach and colour mixing? And anything else you think I might need to know. Thanks for you indulgence, Phil.
