I’m Starting to Figure This Out

Good morning my Friends! Well, i stayed up late last night painting. I’m still learning how to paint, but last night was the first time where i felt like i’m going to able to figure out how to paint. hahah. It’s true. i never could picture myself being able to paint, it’s such a foreign concept to me. i’ve been scared of using oils, just thought it wasn’t for me, but this has been such a fun experience! It’s always fun to try something new and let it stretch you. : )This is the third layer of paint… i think there will probably be 8 layers. Right now I’m letting the paint and glazes dry. i hope you all like how it is coming along.

The painting is part of a How to Series. Click the links below to see this piece come to life

    Oil painting is so therapeutic. I’m glad you’re enjoying and experimenting with it! Your blog still is always one of my daily stops :)

  2. You are amazing! I cannot believe you are in the learning phase of painting! It’s all so lovely, I would never ever be able to draw OR paint the stripes on that shirt and how they twist and fold. And the hands and face! All you need to do now is try painting the ocean, if you get that right- you are truly an amazing artist.
