"tea pot, gourde and dead rose"


                                                8 x 10      Oil

Well here is another of my exercises for my oil class. Not the best but I am really liking this oil paint. The only thing I have to get use to is wiping my brush so much in between colors and such. But I love how the paint mixes and blends.
I had to get a regular job to make ends meet so I am not posting as much sorry.

I think we hooked another one lady! Oil paints are so much fun, and it's obvious from this that you are a natural!

Wow!! beautiful work!! I've never worked in oil!! I'm so impressed with your piece!!

Manon,
Thank you . You should try oil, it is a different feel. I would say sometimes it is easier than acrylic. But because I liked instant dry acrylic was what i used most but this really enable you to blend things in a much different way.

The painting is lovely... there is nothing quite like the feel of oil paint.

Ouch! about the 'real job'. Hope it leaves you energy to paint.
