More oil desaster

May 12, 2008 § 2 Comments

Hi everybody out there! How are you doing?

Q: Did I keep up with my oil painting plan?
A: Yes. I. Did.
However, I’m not really satisfied with the results as for now. Actually that’s the reason, too, why you didn’t get to see any more paintings from me recently ;-p. Linseed oil is still my worst enemy, though I started to appreciate the texture it gives to oil paintings.

Maybe I just choose objects to paint that were a little bit too difficult for an one-hour-painting? I’ll need to start again with the basics and take simple shapes, a mug, a flower or something like this, maybe I’ll do better then.

    That’s a lush texture, Silvia. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Just enjoy the process and see what happens. x

    Oh, Silvia …
    Sometimes the heart whispers frustrating things. And, sometimes it’s okay not to listen to it. πŸ™‚
    I like this painting. It’s bold textures contrast intriguingly with the “quiet” colors. The hands pose evoke a contemplative mood. It’s very good πŸ™‚
