A Horse in Oils

I have never tried oil paint before but ended up winning a small set on an Instagram giveaway. I was so excited to try it out but didn't have much for ideas so I used this tiny (2x2 inches?) canvas. I also found out I had no patience when it came to blending everything just right so I opted for the more painterly route. It was fun.

Re: A Horse in Oils

Nice little oil painting your strokes give the illusion of muscle on the horse. Not blending your paint is bold. I’m happy to hear you had fun. Can hardly wait to see your next little work of art.

The painterly style suits minis so well, plus it's my favourite.

You did beautifully on this, it's absolutely charming.

Re: A Horse in Oils

Oops, I haven't been back here in a little while. Thanks for the comments, everyone. I really want to use these paints to work on a bigger painting I have partially done in acrylics but I like how quickly I can paint something small and still feel productive.
