An Experiment in Oils

Oil on canvas May 2017

First time working with oils paints! Initial impressions? 1. It takes an incredible amount of time to dry. I did this one about two weeks ago, and it’s still tacky. 2. A little bit of paint goes a long way. 3. The colors! So luminescent! I’m in love. 4. Those pretty colors quickly descend into flat grey if over mixed. 5. It’s really hard to tell how much is too much mixing.

Bob Ross made it look so easy.

I will definitely come back to oils. I’ll keep you all posted on the results!
