Wet on Wet Oil Painting with Manju Chhabra

Wet on Wet Oil Painting

The wet on wet painting technique with Oils became immensely popular due to regular TV programmes during the 2020 lockdown due to the pandemic. The wet-on-wet oil painting technique is exactly how it sounds, painting directly on top of wet paint without allowing the lower layer to dry. The wet-on-wet method is also referred to as ‘direct painting’. However, these are not the only names for the technique, you may also hear it called ‘wet-in-wet’, ‘wet-into wet’, or ‘alla prima, which means the first attempt in Italian. It is with this method that artist Bob Ross creates his inspiring and relaxing paintings.

She painted reindeer and mountains in black colour and gave finishing touches to her painting.

Towards The End Of The Workshop

Manju created a beautiful Wet on Wet Oil Painting as it looked aesthetically pleasing. All the participants appreciated her artwork and showed their co-created artworks to Manju.
