It’s sunny, and I have the window open. It’s nice painting with oils and being able to breath in the fresh outside air. The best.
I choose to start my paintings in acrylic for several reasons but mainly because it dries faster than oil— therefore, I can work on several at a time— and get the jist of it painted before I get to the good stuff with my oil paints. I always end in oil because I love the depth of colour oil painting provides, I love the feel and consistency of oil, and even the smell better! It makes me happy.
