Just a small painting in process, but in oil. Its been a while since I painted in oil, so I'm still refreshing myself on it. I miss the insanely fast drying time of acrylic, but you just cannot replicate the colors and light absorption of oil paint. The more I work on the piece the better the colors look, I starting to punch myself for moving away from oils, but at the same time I want to punch oil paint for never drying when I want it to.
I have been sick all week and it has been super lame. So I busted out some printmaking paper Carla brought with her when the family came out to visit and started messing around. I definitely do not like painting on paper as much as canvas, it absorbs so much of the water, and I feel like I'm painting a watercolor, which doesn't make since because I don't know anything about watercolor. Basically I am trying to weasel out of a bad painting. Any who, I doubt I'll finish it, just wanted to experiment and make a blog post mostly.
