blobs of oil paint


Another day of training myself to use more paint. A palette knife helps in applying big blobs - well, they're big to me. Others would laugh. Also finally remembered to clean my metal thinner containers and add fresh Gamsol odorless mineral spirits. Today's painting was more fun than frustration.

A successful painting, indeed! It looks like you had fun while painting it!

What makes it hard to use paint generously?

Thanks Katherine. My frugal ways are probably from my childhood. I'm trying to get over it :)
