first stab at oil painting…
May 26, 2009
i’ve been threatening to try oil painting for a while now, and have secretly been experimenting in my basement over the last few months. the thing with oils is, well they’re a lot messier than pastels, believe it or not, and as such require a whole lot more cleanup time. add to that the fact that i have two inquisitive children, one a 2 1/2 year old artist who would love nothing more than to squish oil paint and varnish between her toes, and you can see my need to keep things on the down-low.
so i thought i should post some results, if for no other reason than to force myself headlong into the deep end. there’s no turning back now.
ps. besides the cleanup time, there’s an abundance of smell involved (some of it ain’t good). anyone with an old stove vent to give away?
