Hi again.. I just wanted to share.. this my very first touch with oil paints..

Here is my work space all primed and ready to go… I thought I’d start by using the palette knife seen at bottom right amongst the virgin tubes of paint!

And here is the canvas with the pain applied so far, actually I had completed more after this was taken… I loved how the paint felt on my brush against the canvas, almost intoxicating! but wow I wasn’t quite ready for how long the paint takes to dry!!!! I want to get more color on there, but with what’s there still wet I know I’ll have to wait! so anyway I think I’ve made a nice enough background of sorts.. I have no idea where it’s going to end up.. it’s just a play to get used to the paint..

Thanks for reading.. I’ll hopefully post another update once I’ve added some more.. 🙂
