Rocks and Moss

Rocks and Moss - 11 x 14 Oil on Canvas $150

Here is my very first oil painting. I took a workshop at Vancouver Island School of Art to alleviate my worries about thinners and such. Now I'm at the bottom of a very steep slope. Caution! Big learning curve ahead! I love how you can blend so easily with oils, but I have to get used to how to apply the paint in layers while still wet. I'm having fun experimenting though. I'll probably go back and forth between acrylics and oils for a while, until I figure out which medium I like to use in which application. Got any tips for the novice oil painter?
