I love Oil Painting!!

Yes,  I think I'm slowly being converted to the ways of the oils!  This art course is the best thing i could have done in order to better myself as an artist as i am learning all kinds of magical and crazy techniques!  This week i was shown how to knock back the background of my painting using equal amounts of linseed oil with sansodor and then putting slight amounts of colour over the top, creating a glaze!  Amazing, it was like magic!  And the beauty is if i didn't like it i could wipe it off with a cloth and my original paint was still underneath!  I am also really pleased as my teacher likened my work to pointillism!!  As a lover of Georges Seurat's work this has pleased me very much! See what you think...
