As work is really, really slow right now, I signed up for a 2 day painting course last week to kick-start me into actually using some of the art supplies I've had lying around the house for decades...

It was really neat, as I was able to try out oil, acrylic and aquarelle over the course of the 2 days, which saved me buying all the material for nothing.

I definitely prefer working with oil paints. I love the way you can keep blending the colours on the paper and how the painting evolves constantly as soon as you add a new colour or brush stroke. It totally suits me :-)
I also quite enjoyed the acrylic paints, but they don't have the same feel to them.

I took some pics of the "works of art" (lol), so here they are:

The first four are oil, the last 2 are acrylic. Yesterday I invited and friend over and we had a painting session in the afternoon, so more paintings will follow :-)

LOVING the first one!

I wish I could paint/draw.
I am an embroiderer and card maker. Anything with scissors and threads and stuff.....but freehand art....not a hope!!
