Restarting A Painting

Question: Darrell.when you pause for a day or two from painting a wet on wet painting how do you start again with a wet on wet surface since the paint is now dry ??????

Darrell’s Answer: Wet the area with a clear oil painting medium (Very thin. If too wet, wipe excess off with a paper towel). Then paint as your normally would. Remember all color will be dry, so there will be no blending. So if you’re doing reflections in a lake and you want the lake color to blend with what you’re doing, you’ll need to put a light coat of the lake color down, then add your new items. But if no blending is required, simply wet n paint.
