It has been quite a while since I have got out my oil paints – maybe years! I had always loved painting with the rich and creamy oil paint but the length of the drying time was the reason I went to acrylic paint. I was always in a hurry to complete my works.
Don’t get me wrong, I love acrylic paint – they are so versatile and fast drying but OILS are just wonderful and the oil colour is so vibrant and the texture is so silky and organic – I have fallen in love with Oils again!
SO I will just have to get used to taking life at a slower pace when I work in Oil. Naturally I will continue to paint in acrylics as well.
Below is the first large oil painting I have finished since my return to this medium.
Nymph in the Rainforest.
