Oil Painting Mediums

These painting medium techniques can include scumbling, which allows you to build up multiple layers of “broken” colour, which is essentially speckled or deliberately cracked to produce a base layer that shows through the top layers, giving a sense of depth, texture and colour variation to the piece that you’re working on. This can be achieved with opaque or transparent colours, with opaque working best; additionally the base layer needs to be thinned with Winsor & Newton Liquin Original as well as being lighter than the upper layer.

Or maybe you want to explore texture further by using the impasto technique, which allows painters to create textured areas in an oil painting by making thick layers of paint show visible brush strokes. Depending on the type of medium used, such as the Winsor & Newton Liquin Impasto medium, this can often increase the drying time of oil colours whilst thickening and adding to the paint tube colour and also retaining crisp textures at the same time.

As such, with any of our mediums being used in your artwork, you’ll soon find new techniques and styles to help create some absolutely stunning artwork.
