Today I spent the better part of the day experimenting with a new set of water soluble oil paints. I loved the juiciness of the paint, but I had no idea what to do with it. I have read other artists write that they "wiped off" and began again and now know what they mean, having done that FOUR times. I still have three very pathetic attempts waiting to dry so I can try to learn from them and move on.
I love acrylics because they dry quickly and I can accomplish many layers. With the oil paints, the "many layers" turned into a dirty mess.
I will try again, but perhaps I should keep my day job.
