I am admiring this painting and with my eyes it is hard to tell that it is an oil. You have achieved a beautiful look that is similar to your watercolors. I have been painting in watercolor for a long time and last year took up oil. I love both mediums. Do you thin your paints a lot when using the oils?

Hi Pat, Thank you for your kind comments.
I do use medium when I paint with oils: Liquin. This gives a good flow and is quick drying (overnight).
