Great play of warm/cool here Julie and still quite abstract. Good that you moved away from chalk too, Wonderful! Brian
Congrats on working with oils... they scare me. What size is this one? I like the tones and textures you were able to create. For me, I have trouble reading the painting. I think it's a horse, but I'm not sure. With the information provided, it looks sort of alien to me. But maybe that's your goal--to challenge the eye a bit... or maybe it's obvious and I just can't see it (it's happened before on the blog).
Julie, If this is your first attempt at oil...kudos to you. It's great. Wonderful perspective.I checked into Liquin and it's a drying medium also so you go girl.
Hey all, Thanks for your comments. It's not my first oil, but I have never been taught or seen a demo. I agree Elliot, it has an alien feel. I did enjoy the process, and I learned that Brain's technique works with oils, with enough drying time inbetween.
