The progression of this painting.
Rembrandt colors, self portrait

I thought since blending is easier with oil, and that I just spent two years painting from models in pastels and oils, new window.
I should paint a self portrait in oil. I drew it in charcoal with my shirt off, meaning to add a shirt later but the later never came.

TIP: Alcohol on will remove dried oil paint. Alcohol will also dissolve the dry water-based acrylics on your palette or on your painting, the acrylic paints harden again upon drying. Alcohol dries faster than water so you have another tool. Another water-based paint is Cera Colla Wax Soap emulsion, new window. It's made by emulsifying wax and ammonia with heat. Ammonia or water are the two ways to either dissolve, remove or paint with either the cara cola wax paint or acrylics. Alcohol is good for cleaning the heel of brushes but it destroys paints. You can bring back a brush-full of that acrylic color that just dried out on your palette with ammonia.

Another water-based medium is Fresco, new window. You can use alcohol as lime water to lock in a pigment in a fresco, not that you would want to. Too much alcohol will melt the lime.
Alcohol will also lift off dried oil paint right down to the white gesso, and beyond if you wanted it to.

The last medium I want to paint a portrait in is wet skim non-fat milk and dry skim non-fat milk powder and stand oil or sun dried linseed oil . Both are made to the same consistency and mixed oil2:3non-fat milk. This mix is combined with tube oil paint, 1:1. It sets in the same time frame as water and no solvent is needed.

Instead, I painted another self portraid in acrylics the same size as the last one, 11x15, 9-13-15, called "Self Portraid 2 Lights 9-13-15 #1007". It's warm light from the left and cool light from the right.

With the head level:
The top of the ears line up with pupils.
The ear hole and the bottom of the nose are even.
The bottom of the ears and the bottom of the top teeth are even.

Matess did a complementary/opposition self portraid with green and red pigments,
the set of colors that Newton proposed. That's the yellow-red-blue set of primaries and it doesn't work with nature.
To get the correct amounts of color use printers transparent yellow, magenta and cyan plates.

The only "complementary - opposition" colorwheel that uses yellow, magenta and cyan pigments is colorwheel.htm
