As some of you know, I have been painting with acrylics for a long, long time now. Recently, though, I became so tired of the darkened tones, the too fast drying, and the difficulty of blending soft colors that I decided to switch to oils. Below is my first full painting in oils.
I love the ability to have both soft and hard edges, something I need to do much more of. My computer monitor makes everything look squatty--shorter than the actual painting. I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has this problem. Any way to correct it?
Next I will do a winter landscape. Champing at the bit here--what do you mean housework?
