Still Life Duo Number 4
In case anyone out there has been wondering where I’d wandered off to lately , I’m trying to learn oil painting, thanks to Nel, who is teaching an online class.
Whenever I learn a new medium I get grumpy and dissatisfied with myself. Why can’t I just be a virtuoso right way? There must be something wrong with me! Yes, once out of my comfort zone I become extremely jumpy.
I have an awfully active and critical left brain, and I wish it would shut up.
So here is my latest pastel in this series, followed by my very first oil painting. I’m working so hard just keeping the paint on the surface that it’s tight and messy at the same time, but on the up side, I can only get better.
I’ve also been doing lots of life drawing, but I need to go through it all and cull. I’ll post some of that tomorrow.
