Can anyone tell me how to get this look with oils?

    I absolutely love this artist's work. I would love to acheive this fluid look, but can anyone tell me how it's done? I'm assuming he uses some kind of solvent with the oils but how does it not ruin the layers beneath?

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated! I'm new to oils :)
  • Hello Dmarie,

    I'm not an oil painter so this is a shot in the dark. I'm imagining it's painted with layers of varnish in between, but that's totally a guess.

    There must be some painters out there with some input!

    Come on gang! Throw out your thoughts!
