Oils No. 1

I'm calling this Oils No. 1 though it's not technically my first oil painting. I've done a few more. They were paintings I did following another artist's instruction. And they were not my style. I knew that going in. Painting "my style" wasn't the point of those exercises. I was just trying to get a feel for the medium.

With this painting I'm still feeling out the medium. But I feel ready to branch out into a painting that was "me". I learned a lot while working on it. And I really enjoyed working with the oil paints. A LOT!!! I'm knee-deep in Oils No. 2 at the moment. :)

This is called She's Nothing To Crow About.



As for the other paintings I did prior to her? Well they will probably never see the light of day. Unless I decided to rework them and make them more "me". Maybe I should add a few crows?
