A while back I decided to try oil painting again after a very long time away from it... As it turned out I tried, I liked, but it didn't like me.. The smells, and the mess, but mostly the smell didn't agree with me.. I was using a medium, Liquin, to mix and it's toxic..
I have a very small place, studio and living space. Eating and sleeping in the same room with oil paint is not a 'good thing'.
So now I'm using acrylics, as a second choice to my watercolor.. Oils are still the best of the two.
Here is my interpretation of the same scene in watercolor, and second in acrylic.
Very different in terms of application and confirms my belief that watercolor is delicate as opposed to acrylics.
That's my story, stickin' to it. Do you have one. ? Let me know.
