I'm starting to work with oils again, after a break of a few years mostly due to space and time restrictions. This is a section of a large painting that I'm working on right now. In some ways oils are really satisfying to work with, don't get me wrong I love watercolors but they are not as rich in texture. Perhaps I will do some still-lifes with them. Not sure what other artists feel about painting in oil vs. watercolor, but for me its more relaxing to paint in oil because of the mediums slower pace (very slow drying time) and I feel like my mistakes are easily covered over. Well back to painting! Hope I can share the finished piece with you soon.
