My Oily Beginning
My Dabbling with Oils . . . wish me luck . . . I will need it!!
Well, the curiosity is about to kill the cat. I am diving in with both feet and you will all witness either my success or failure with this medium. These pics to the left are of my first oil painting. I was watching a watercolor video of a sunset scene and was inspired to give it a try with the oils.
I am still figuring out how to work the oil paints and how to blend them without smearing the colors and ending up with mud. I was trying to follow an oil painting lesson for my first try but ended up wiping off the canvas 3 times and starting over. So I gave it a rest. While watching the watercolor video lesson, as i mentioned above, I started doing it with my oils and was really happy with the result. Since this painting came out fairly good, I left it be after I added the trees so as not to end up with mud again. LOL!!
