CAT FAN - Oil Painting by AstridBruning CAT FAN - Oil Painting by AstridBruning
8 x 10 inch Oil paint on aluminium sheet

An experiment painting oils on aluminium, using palette knife and brushes. (a bit more painterly than my usual work)

An unusual surface to work on, very slick (slides) and if an area doesnt work you can just wipe it off to its original surface. And there is also the element of allowing the metallic surface to be part of the composition.

The cat is from my imagination.

Beautiful blue cat! The loose, painterly treatment treatment of the background contrasts nicely with the quiet and cautious expression of the kitty. :-)

It had big impact because it looks just like a black cat I had which passed away three years ago. I admire how the undefined background goes with the  realistic looking cat.

Such a neat material to experiment with and it's worked out amazingly. I love the coloration, the textures, the metallic underlay. In color it feels like a set with your Beetlejuice piece, [link], a sort of warm and cool pairing. They're both fantastic works.

Beautiful work! I have wanted to try oil but never make the move. Can you tell me what sets oil apart from for example acrylics
Reply
:iconastridbruning:
AstridBruning Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012
thankyou, Acrylics dry fast which makes it difficult to blend, with oils you have hours to work with the paint and blend on the canvas to create more subtle colours and tones and transitions. I find acrylics a lot brighter in colour and when they dry are slightly darker. I think they are the two main differences :iconleartistplz:

I see, yes the drying time is a bit short but on the other hand oil takes days? Then do you have to wait days before continuing? Or am I wrong?

yes oils can take days to dry before continuing. Ever medium has positives and negatives.
