Two old brushes. One of them is from my San Francisco days (1967) but forget which one. The top brush is unusable but I save it still.
Painted an undercoating a few days ago. I think it is called imprimatura. You do that so you are not painting against white. You can use any color you like for the undercoating.
As all my photos are in the computer, I made a sketch from one photo and took that into the studio as a reference. As you can see I splattered oil paint on it.
Then I just began laying in the colors. Maybe they are so faint as they are mixed with white? This looks only partly like the real scene. In reality there are lots of trees around the house and in the background. I like the texture of oil paint very much. I used Turpenoid which I thought had no smell but it does. Still, better than turpentine I guess.
