Along with AVO LOVE this painting was one of my first ever oil paintings. I had purchased a small oil painting set from a local art store named Artist Emporium and there began my oil painting journey. With several practises and experiments done on my own I made the decision to just go for it! The beginning stages were very similar to how I would create any other watercolour or acrylic works. Working with the much more sophisticated and complex characteristics of oil paints compared to acrylics was indeed a challenge, but an excellent one. I would never call myself experienced in this medium but I can say I have thoroughly enjoyed the new challenges.
