My first oil painting in nearly forty years! I love the soft veils of colour possible with oils. I normally work fast, hence my usual use of acrylics, but I so enjoyed this!
Regular visitors to this blog will know I’ve been working in acrylics, with and without other media, for a number of years, so it will be interesting to see which way I eventually go now.
After painting this I enjoyed bashing acrylic onto another canvas, wiping off etc. Acrylic seems to appeal to the impatient exuberant side of me, whereas using oils I found calming, almost meditative. (unfortunately the light wasn’t great, hence the not very sharp photos).
