I spent the whole day painting and this is how far I got today…the colours on screen are lamentably poor, compared to the richness of them on paper. The blue’s more ultramarine and the red so much deeper). I’m really tired right now, so I’m getting ready to pick up the girls and spend a nice afternoon with them…cherish them.

Oils work great! I think gouache is not going to be it for me…I haven’t given up on it completely just yet, but they seem so coarse in comparison to the creaminess of the oils. And I love that oils don’t dry. It allows for such wonderful blending…can’t say it often enough. Well, who can shut up about their new love, eh? Now I have two great loves…oil paint and watercolor…sigh…
