A few issues I'm having is that:
- To thin the oil paint I find that I have more than once used turpentine to thin the paint instead of my medium.
- My brush strokes are bazaar at best, I'm not use to seeing shapes.
- Not knowing what brushes to use and when.
- I'm also wondering if this set-up with the fall leaves was too much for me at this stage of my learning oil paints.
Those issues above really have nothing to do with the poor drawing skills I've shown, but non-the-less I'm going to continue my oil painting journey.
I'm open to all suggestions and advise ....( except 'quit while I'm ahead').
