About a year and a half ago, I took a painting class up at the local college. I had heard it was an oil painting class. So before the class began, I went to an art supply store and bought some basic oil painting supplies of the super cheap sort.
The class ended up in a different room than in previous years and the new room had less ventilation than the last. As a result, it became an acrylics class.
After my experiences with the class, I decided I wasn't a big fan of acrylics as they were too hard to mix.
A few months ago, I thought I might try some oil painting since I still had some supplies. I started a painting and would work on it off and on when inspiration struck. I've decided I'm now done with it and don't want to work on it anymore. Here it is:
I'm not totally delighted with the painting but I like oil paints way better than acrylics. They take a long time to dry but that's fine for someone lazy like me as it gives me an excuse not to paint all the time. Since it was a pleasant experience, I have purchased some higher quality paint and brushes. Now I have to use them so they don't go to waste.
