WIP 20 x 24 inch oil Radishes & Pitcher

This is the second painting that I am finishing up on my easel. I worked another 3 or 4 hours on it today and still need some more time. This is the same pitcher as the previous painting only slightly larger than life.

Finished! 20 x 24 inch Oil Still life

I really enjoyed doing this painting probably because it is in oil and not acrylic. Oils are really lovely to work with even with the slow drying time. I have another one on the easel right now about half way finished and I am eager to start another.

New acrylic 16 x 20 inch

I have been playing with this painting for a few days and it is finally finished. The crystal just about drove me crazy but other than that it was a fun one to do. Thankyou to the contributor of the photo at This was done in the interlude of waiting for two oil paintings to dry so that I can continue with them. I will post them soon.

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!
