Hey I forgot to welcome you to the fantastic world of oil painting. I have to commend you for taking it on.Most people get intimidated by the medium and to tell you the truth I find it one of the easiest things to work with. I have been painting in oil for over twenty years. I don't know how far you want to go with it but I hope you don't mind my recommending a book it is called "How to paint like the Old Masters". It was written by Joseph Sheppard. You will probably find it on Amazon. It covers all the materials and step by step directions on how all the old masters did such stunning work. It helped me a great deal Take care.
