sun flowers

I've been doing art forever and have been doing digital painting for the last 11 years. Earlier this year I wanted to try getting back into traditional painting. I've never tried oils before so I figured with water soluble I could try them. These are two of my latest tries in oils. Thanks for looking and all comments and critiques are always welcome!

Re: sun flowers

Love the dynamism of the flowers in the first - though the comp is a litle unbalanced I think - the flowers want to upset the jug!

The lighting in the 2nd is lovely and it's a nice grouping - just maybe check the shadow on the table/base of vase?

Glad you're enjoying the 'real' stuff again - but I also enjoy digi painting so I don't say 'forget it'!!!!

Re: sun flowers

These are beautiful. I've had water-soluble oils sitting in a box for years. Maybe 2018 is the year to break them out.

Re: sun flowers

Thanks Kathy! Go ahead and break out those Oils!

I have tried so many different mediums over the years (I love trying new things) . Pastels, dry and oil, wc, colored pencil , acrylics and digital. In everything I have tried in traditional mediums, oils have won my heart. I could never try oils because of solvent issue allergies and never wanted to take a chance. With Water Soluble I have solved that issue. Now I just have to figure them out! But I am learning!

I do admit that Digital will always hold a special place in my heart though.
