Oil Paintings - a Beginner's Tale
Never did I think I would pick up a paint brush in my life until an unplanned encounter in 2015. At a monthly artist demonstration at the Llano Fine Art Guild, Carla Sanchez introduced participants to oil painting a wine bottle. I arrived late and hadn't intended to paint, but canvas and brush were put into my hands and I immediately fell in love with the process. I joined Carla's weekly class and practiced painting in the Chiaroscuro style painting. I began playing with impasto in later compositions. Below are a few of the paintings that I worked on while learning various techniques.
