I am really enjoying my oil painting and was so glad to get back to my canvas this afternoon! I'm so pleased with the way this one is developing! I am using this time away from my oil class to put into practice all the techniques i have learnt so far, ready for the new term and new challenges ahead.

The curse of using oils hit me today! Because i was creating some lovely impasto work with my palette knives last week, the paint is still wet today! I didn't want to risk messing it up as i am really happy with the way it is progressing so i decided to get my acrylics out and start a new painting! Now i have 2 on the go at once! A new first for me! As i started painting it hit me that i haven't used acrylics in a year, (plus that it was no good starting without water for my brushes!)! This one is a more abstract piece to complement one of my earlier pieces "peacock train". It was difficult to get going but here is the start.

This is the first stage of my new oil painting! I have decided to use a mix of paintbrushes and palette knifes as there are so many different textures to this one! I am really liking the profile i am getting with the knives as i love the texture of thick paint on canvas, it really adds dimension and extra interest.
