First time without extra oil

Today I did something I have never done before. I painted on plywood without using any extra linseed oil. This means that the paint was really dry, since the oil in the paint soaks in to the plywood very quickly. I also used old and worn brushes, which makes it more like using crayons or pastels. I think I will leave the painting now. The areas which have no paint will darken, as the wood ages, which may add extra texture to the work, who knows? That is part of the fun, to see what is going to happen…

(I am still thinking about where to place the 12 meter painting. Stay tuned!)
