I spend most of my time painting in acrylics. Which dries fast and washes up easily with soap and water. And when I find myself getting frustrated with my painting skills, I usually forget that some of the frustration could be taken away if I switched to oils now and then. Blending is heaven in oils, because they stay wet for so long in comparison to acrylics.
Oils have their bothersome-ness too. If you’re doing lots of transparent layers, the drying time can seem to take forever. And clean up is a bit of a pain – need solvent and lots of newspaper.
Aaaaannyway, I have been working on a couple of paintings over the past few days. Working alternately on them and lots of layers of glaze.
