RE: The Path of History [detail] oil and natural earths on canvas - steps

in OCDlast year

Very impressive painting and so enjoyable to read about your though processes in the creation as well as the technical aspects.

How long does it take for linseed oils to fully cure, i.e. how long until such a work can be varnished? Will it darken very much, or shift colors?

Sort:  

On a canvas prepared with plaster and glue the natural earths mixed with linseed oil take 1 or two days to dry. I usually use a natural matte varnish and the colors remain unchanged.
