Working on the same premise of wanting to try oil painting I dashed this 16x20 off for as long as my frustration level could handle. I love the smell of oil. (I don't necessarily think this love is mutual to my body or mind...maybe time will tell). I love the feel of oil. That slick way that it goes on to the canvas. My need for speed and getting things down fast is what is frustrating me. I love how it blends but not when I don't want it to blend. Then there is the brush thing. I am not using the right one I know. But it is this get the color on without blending into other colors. I gave up after an hour and moved on to another pastel, just to get a feeling of accomplishment tacked to my motivation board.
