Hi All,

This is my first post in this forum, first of all I would like to thanks for accepting my member request.

I am beginner in Oil Painting, I have uploaded one of my landscape painting in my page. I have few basic query regarding oil painting techniques.
As I know before start the painting in canvas, we need to wet it using liquid white, but I don’t know what liquid white is. I have purchase white texture can I use it for the same.

Also I used Purified Linseed Oil as a medium but in few places I heard about clear gel, what it is.

Thanks in advance for guiding me.
