I’ve been reading up and working on my oil techniques lately, and trying to do a little each day. Since oils are expensive and I’m cheap, I’ve been doing these little baby paintings, just a few inches wide. They’re good practice, although, when I finish one and like it, I always wish I’d made it a bit bigger. But I’m working on scaling up, so bigger paintings are on their way. But for now I’ll revel in the accomplishment of painting tiny, easy-to-finish pieces.
