Paint Tube, Palette Knife and Medium
Whew, finally I've put some pigment to canvas and now can say I've started ... officially!
I apologize for the glare.
I'm still getting use to the consistency of oil paints and how I want to handle them. For me I'm using the trial and error method.
I had put these three items that I sat on some white paper inside a cardboard box. For more controlled lighting (?????), then proceeded to paint. The problem was I just forged ahead and didn't go any preplanning. Next time I will plan, I'll do a value sketch. I always love to do value sketches but I think I just got caught up in the excitement of finally getting some pigment to canvas that I forgot. And, next time I'll plan my colors better.
Lets hope that next time I enjoy painting as much as I did this time.
All critiques and comments welcome.
