I'm no oil painting

An attempt at my first oil painting using a little collection of old oil paints I got from a charity shop.

It's not the greatest picture I've done and I think I could have got much better results using pen and ink, but it was quite fun to try. On the other hand oil painting is a big messy hassle and turpentine stinks.


  1. very nice :)

    I've never been able to get the hand of oils, I much prefer acrylics.

  2. Ta. I think pen, ink and watercolour are really my thing but it's still fun to mess around with other stuff.
