Hi Everyone :wave:

It has been a long time since I have posted anything in here I should really get back to this group as well

here is my first oil Painting - have never used this medium before not sure if I will stick with it....I took a workshop at the local art center but could not complete this in class....so I completed the detail of the pelican using color pencil

C & C always welcome

Good for you trying a new medium. Always an exciting experience. Well done particularly for a first go at oils.

Thanks everyone...I did have fun with this but not sure if it is something I would go back to...I felt I didn't have much control and that it seem to be lacking detail.

but you never know I might get talked into trying again LOL
