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...
