Working in oils can be both liberating (when you’re using them) and frustrating (due to drying times)… Here’re a couple I worked on recently.

  1. Beautiful Aaron! I ashamed to admit that I’ve yet to try oils. Now that my girls are bigger I don’t have to worry about little people getting covered in oil paint, but I’m still strapped for space…I don’t have anywhere I can leave a painting while I’m working on something else. I’m hoping that one day, I’ll have a bigger studio, and then I’ll give it a go.

    1. Thanks Christina.
      Ah, that studio space thing… I consider myself very fortunate to have such a large area (but that doesn’t stop me cluttering it up). Water soluble oils are well worth a go btw…

  2. I hate to admit it but due to that frustrating drying time, I’ve switched over to acrylics and haven’t touched my oil paint in far too long. Your paintings remind me why oils can be worth the hassle. They are looking great.

    1. Thank you. I love the different qualites of each medium, oils are a great way to push the paint around whilst they’re still wet and the blending properties are unequalled. But yes, the drying time can be a hassle. I have 4-5 paintings sitting around my studio unfinished.
