Give it a go! For years I have wanted to try oil painting, or watercolor, or.. well, just something in the painting area. Since the first of this year I’ve watched various youtube videos, checked out my favorite painters’ websites and tips, skimmed some painting books, and collected a few basic supplies. What can I say, I am a DIY kind of gal. Finally, after all that… I had to try. No turning back! Here she is, my first oil painting. You might have guessed my subject.. hee haw! This is Ruby (based on photo on the sidebar to your right).
Please don’t judge – I’m just happy she looks like a donkey. ;) To make it fair, I’ll eventually have to do a Gracie painting. I actually used water mixable oil paints. Since it is winter and we are cooped up in the house, it seemed like a good idea to avoid toxic fumes.
Now, all that’s left to do is sign this one, and decide what to paint next. Hmmmm….!
