Oils

I’m using oil paints again. I’ve gotten some new fast dry mediums that hopefully will help with my hatred of how long it’s been taking my oil paintings to dry. I also bought a new bottle of W&N thinner yesterday but knocked over the bottle half way through my painting. By that point I was done using it so I should’ve put the cap back on. Live and learn.

It was a beautiful, calm morning. Diffused light through the thin clouds. There were lots of ducks. Buffleheads with goldeneyes. Big rafts of cooing, whistling eiders. And I might have seen three gannets. My pocket camera is such garbage the pictures are terrible, but I don’t go in the refuge for birding so I try to focus on painting. Like the waves, the birds are an easy distraction and I’d watch them all day. This is 12×16”
