Good on you for trying the oils Dolly. I havent braved them yet I too will find the drying time a problem.  ;)

Hey Win! I agree! It becomes muddy when I get impatient and looks like you can not easily paint over soon enough to correct your mistakes  :fight: will need to learn to have patience!  :sweat: All the best with your exploration with oils  :gl2:
Carpe Diem!

I think you have done a fantastic job Dolly :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

You have a set of oils now so you may as well use them >:D

You will learn to enjoy the longer blending time with oils. Then you will find yourself starting off with acrylics and finishing of the final touches with oil O0

Thank you Nolan!  :thankyou: Your tutorials and the way you teach especially are precious gems! I wish I could learn from your onsite classes, it would be so much faster and effective. Nevertheless, your online classes and Dennis's lessons are the best online classes on the net!  :flowers:

There is a reason I chose oil and it was do portraits properly, I recently made a portrait of my mother and it took me 7 days of pure self inflicted torture as the colors would not blend well and I was in utter despair...so I recalled you have portrait painting series in Oil - so that was my motivation. Inching towards that goal while tackling some of the simpler oil tutorials.  :fight:

I love how oil glides on the canvas and well, will have to live with the fact that it is not too forgiving and is a hard task master. Makes you ponder over your mistakes and learn the process better rather than just painting over it quickly to get done with it like one would with acrylics. :sweat: A very touch departure from the temperament of my day job - which is that of an IT program manager where I chase deadlines and quality in an extremely hustled environment   :idiot2: :knuppel2:

And giving finishing touches is also a challenge while you are waiting for the painting to dry and to find a safe place in the room to keep it for a few days to dry... quite a change in pace when compared with acrylics. May be I will appreciate it with some time!

Have a wonderful day!
Carpe Diem!
