There may be several words you come across that relate to oil painting. Sometimes it helps to know what each word means; it can make learning oil painting much easier! A pigment refers to the true color or hue of the paint. To prime means you make the surface ready for painting. Scumbling means you drag the paint in a broken manner over a previously dry painted surface. Linseed Oil is the primary binding agent in oil painting and printing inks. Saturation refers to the greatest possible intensity of color.
I am a begining oil painter. I was wondering what colors you suggest a beginer buy. I`ve heard students in my classes talking about how they use only a few "basic" colors, in which they can mix a large range of colors from. Do you have any tips?
