WIP NEW 20 x 24 inch oil

It feels so good to be working in oil again after being in the house with my acrylics thru the winter. I only like to work with oil in my outside studio when the temperature warms up. I am planning on doing several paintings over the summer months hopefully before it gets too warm. This is just the beginning to this painting after around 3.5 hours of work. It is going quite quickly and I like how it is progressing. I will need to wait a few days for the paint to dry as I am using a painting medium of stand oil and OMS around 5:2 ratio. I really like how the stand oil leaves a nice shine to the surface and the OMS will increase the drying time a bit. Stay tuned!
