I’ve not done any painting for a while but the other night the kids went to bed early and I had a spare hour so I thought I’d try another little portrait. Usually I do sketches and try to measure stuff out but this time I just slapped the paint down really fast and I think I prefer this picture to the ones I took more care over. I didn’t use any paint thinner and I like how thick and buttery the paint is. If any of you’ve ever considered trying your hand at oil painting I can highly recommend it as a way to get back in touch with your ten year-old self. There’s something really calming about pushing paint round and trying to make it look like a thing.
