Paesaggio doppio.

Home made oil paint on hand made non pressed 650gr. paper. 100x100cm.

I made this oil colours myself, I use for the orange, red and yellow cadmiums pigment, for the blue and green Phtalo blue and green; Phtalos are very fine pigments but they are not soluble in water, you need to put them in alcohol before; but with oil you put them togheter in a jar stear a bit and left alone for few days, after I use some damar lac diluted in oil of turpentine (my invention) so they can dry after use.
