Yesterday night in life painting class we had an accordeon-player performing for us.
I managed to do 2 oil sketches and tried to stay loose in my painting.
I used watermixable oil on gessoed watercolour paper for this, an ideal medium for these quick sketches. You can thin the paint with water and use it in a watercolour kind of way or use the paint like it comes straight out of the tube for more impasto style of painting.
