I was given a set of oils for christmas. I am usually an acrylics kind of gal, but have been wanting to 'have a go' at some oils for some time ......... This one has been painted on canvas paper (about 21 cm x 21 cm) which proved a really good substrate. Its not so good with acrylics so I thought I would give it a try with oils instead. The rough surface is ideal for slapping on oil colours and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. I had no idea oils were so much fun!! Those that know me will not be surprsed by the subject matter, since I 'love' shoes. They are works of art in themselves and I am after having a go at painting some cha-cha heels next :-)
I have a passion for painting which I have been able to develop these past few years when I have finally become old enough and wise enough to stop doing what I was told and start doing what I truly wanted to do. I heartily recommend it.
