This section of the site contains my explorations into the world of oil painting, starting from basically from zero. After all, how hard can it be?
After much prevaricating, I managed to get my act sufficiently together (so many distractions: make the easel, make the trundle thingy to old the pallet and paints, watch a few more videos on how to do it, etc etc) and put paint on the pallet and started to daub.
First thing: this is quite fun! Second thing: it is not at all what I was expecting. Third thing: I have a shit-tonne of stuff to learn and practice to do. Anyhow, here is No1, not because it is particularly good (hint: it is a tree), but more as a marker for later progress. Now onward with more exercises.
