Tiger Painting – Beginning the Oil Paints

Well with the acrylic underpainting, complete and dry I am now gradually going over the underpainting with the 1st coat of oils. Here you can see that I have applied oil paints to the eye areas and also the blue side of the fur.

Another benefit of a quick acrylic underpainting is that you require less layers of the oil to give a nice opaque colour.
