My daughter is an artist too. Her blog is called That's Sketchy. She recently painted this horse in oil and keeps telling me I should switch from watercolor to oil...because it's so much easier. I tell you, oil is not intuitive to me! It feels like I'm thinking back-words! I started painting with watercolor such a long time ago when the kids were babies, because I didn't want to expose them to toxic fumes. I enjoy watercolor so much and am so comfortable with it!
I really do like the look and feel of oil, though. Maybe I will do a little more of it!
