Day 162

This is perhaps the most finished "artwork" to date in this project.

To me, there's something very special about working in oils as opposed to any kind of drawing. I don't know if it's the added element of color, or if it's the perceived added level of difficulty. As for me, I know that it takes me longer to make a painting that it does to work in pencil, or pen, or charcoal.

And I can go a step further to sat that it simply feels good to put paint onto a surface with a brush. It literally puts me at ease and makes me feel comfortable and relaxed. Why I allow myself to go stretches of time without making a painting, I'll never know...
