I've done a very similar tonal/value study before, but I wanted to do it again using the the same method as Sanden, because he refers to this 'swatch' in later mixing combinations.
Also, on Friday, I voiced concern about the oils I was pre-mixing and storing in jars drying up. After doing some research, I found out that Oil of Cloves is the solution. Lucky I had some in the house for killing mold!
I smeared a drop under the lid (not into the paint) and rubbed it in with a cotton-bud. The fumes seem to be doing their job as the paint had not developed a film/skin and are looking very lush and wet after four days.
