It took me a while to start with the oil painting, but I am happy the way this one has turned out. I mean I am no Picasso after all.
And this one is sold the day it got completed.... for a blank cheque. Believe me, the painting looks much more decent than this photo. I tried couple of times but somehow I could never capture the exact shades in the painting.
It's fun doing oil painting. No matter what you do, it always looks brilliant. As you keep adding more layers of colors, the picture changes dramatically. The only problem is, it takes ages to dry. So when you want to add another layer, you have to wait for a least couple of days. It's a long process. But it is worth it.I think if I start multiple paintings at the same time, I can do it effectively. While one painting is drying, I can work on another. But my bedroom will be full of turpentine smell all the time.
I am going to do few more paintings, while I am at it.
