Drying time will vary depending on numerous factors such as heat, humidity, thickness of paint, painting surface, brand of paint used, mediums used with the paint, etc. Another factor is the individual colors used. Different colors have different drying times (i.e., normally Blue will dry very fast while colors like Red, White and Yellow are very slow drying). A good average time for an oil painting to dry, when painted in this technique, is approximately one week.
3. The lips. Lips can also make or break a portrait. To paint lips, first start with a drawing of them. Follow the facial proportion guidelines and outline the lips with a color you have gotten from the flesh tone but add a little more red or rose. Another good color for lips is to add a tiny bit of raw umber or crimson to the flesh tone. Now fill in the lips with color. The upper lip will be darker than the lower lip. Be careful not to make the lips look too pink or red, unless the subject is wearing lipstick. Make sure to show a little highlight on the bottom lip. The more highlight you add, the more moist the lip will appear. Softly blend the bottom line of the bottom lip with the skin to make them look natural; there should be no hard line. Now add shadows directly above the top lip, and under the bottom lip and in the chin crease.
One thing to keep in mind when painting stucco is that you need to be sure that the wall is ready to be painted. If you have just applied the retaining wall siding then you should wait up to six weeks before applying any type of paint. If you need to repair damaged drywall then you should do this first. Repairing damages should be done prior to applying any type of stucco mixture. It is recommended you repair all cracks and apply new stucco before you attempt to paint.
