Over the last few weeks, I have been kinda sparse around here. But it’s not because I completely forgot how to type suddenly. Rather, it’s because I am just doing a lot more artwork, mainly cartooning as evidenced by a cartoon I did (then decided against putting up on my personal site) to the left.
I had given thought to doing custom cartoons for people for a base price of $50 (till I got a few clients going). But ever changing as I am, I quickly rethought it and decided I don’t need another set of things to do. I mean hey, I can only neglect so many things before Becca hits me over the head with one of my many unfinished canvases or half empty sketchbooks.
But I guess I see doing any kind of art as a stepping stone to whatever your next project is.
So I am tackling oils.
I have put this off as long as possible.
I’ve broken out the books (or am playing around on wikipedia…lol) and have started reviewing the work of the masters again.
The interesting things I have found so far have been the way that the painting with oils has changed so much over the centuries.
It’s completely different for me to be moving to oils. I’ve worked with Acrylics, watercolor and enamels, but only really lightly ever even tried to do much with oils.
The more I learn, the more I realize I am going to be hitting the history books.
