Oil paint has many advantages that you can exploit. One of those is its slow drying nature, but especially for beginners, this can also be a real nuisance too. One issue that crops up often is how easy the vibrant colours turn to mud when mixed. This can happen quickly and leads to much frustration. Sometimes the entire painting is abandoned.
However there is no need to despair. By following a few simple steps your muddy paint mixes will turn into beautiful colour notes. It simply requires some practice and changes to your painting process.
I have prepared a slideshow to highlight these tips. For more detailed demonstrations please have a look at my new course How To Solve Painting Problems.
