Hey there again, if you have been following me on instagram (@anstaylorart), you might have noticed that there’s a lot of oil painting going on lately. I have been taking oil portrait classes since fall, and have recently visited a figurative oil painting studio group (painting live from a model), which I plan to be frequenting on a regular base now. What challenge, and also fun, to try to capture the features of a model in the short intervals between the breaks! Not to mention the exchange with the other artists.
All of this has enforced my love for oils… which had already been my favorite medium this last year: finally I’m able to keep paints and canvases in my own little space (moving from continent to continent with the military did not provide many opportunities, e.g. since oil paints are classified as hazardous materials and won’t ship overseas…). There’s another workshop coming up, and I have been able to increase my hours reserved for painting. So… I hope you like oil as much as I do. Give me your feedback in the comments! And follow me on instagram at anstaylorart, if you haven’t done it yet.
