An update on the cabbage painting, its really coming along. I'm pretty happy with it at the moment. When I walk into the studio I get a shock from the lush greens. Oils really have a pleasant thickness to them, they almost produce a tactile experience.
Although, like I said before, I miss the stain glass look of the watercolors as I paint the leaves. I still really enjoy working with oil and its a completely different medium. Perhaps this is a good example of why I can't choose between the two.
