Sunny Harvest


Sunny Harvest
10" x 10", oil

This was actually my very first foray into water-based oils. Super frustrating to get used to, but I'm hopeful. I also bought some higher quality WB Oils to try for next time. This painting is for our annual fundraiser for the Cambridge Arts Council.

I've been experimenting with water-based oils recently. This is my first try at a palette knife painting, so far they are mush easier to work with using the knife vs. the brush. It's very difficult to get used to the weird cloudiness you get when these paints are thinned with water. At least with the knife I can use the paint right out of the tube--has a really nice soft, smooth texture for painting.
