Mother Nature 5"x7" oil #221
I was challenged with the paint on this one. It is not at its finished state because I need to let it dry a bit and rework a couple of areas. Usually it is the oil paint's ability to slide around that I like, but I had trouble with the features and getting the color right and it got to where the paint would pick up on the brush rather than lay down. This was a new experience for me. The other issue I have is that my brushes are completely worn out and I keep procrastinating at getting new ones. This is really not smart as brushes are a critical tool. I like the composition and the background suggestion.
