Let me just say oils kick acrylic butt. I mean oils pick up acrylic by the scruff of the neck and throw them out of the ring! They're that much better. Painting with oil paint is like painting with butter, so soft and gentle. The blending is amazing - I mean this medium blends like no other. I'll go so far as to say that oil paint could challenge any other medium in the ring and still retain the title as 'World's Greatest Medium'. Oh, and the colour! It's just so vibrant and rich. I can't express my new found love for oils enough. I just wish I'd started using them years ago. I've used every main medium out there, though it figures I've left oils until last!
Well I started my first Geisha on the weekend, and I must say I'm very happy with my progress. Bare in mind this is only the first layer - so much much much more detail to come! Enjoy:)
