~Latest Painting Project~

Hello everyone! :) Here are a few pictures of what I've been doing in my spare time the past few days. I have only used oil paints once before, and this picture has quite a bit more detail then my previous attempt so I'll have to see how it goes.

Ready to paint...

And Here is what I've done so far (on the right)....

I really enjoy working with oil paint since it stays wet long enough for me to correct any mistakes that I might have made. :) Anyway, I will try to post a picture once I'm all the way finished. The picture that I'm painting from is in a library book so that will give me an incentive to get it done faster before it becomes overdue. :)

You are quite talented, Emily! I look forward to seeing the finished painting.

I'm not sure if you saw my response to your comment over on my blog, so I thought that I would post it here. Yes, you may add my blog to your link list if you would like. Thank you for asking!

I've enjoyed looking through your blog. There is quite a bit of interesting and uplifting information! I will definitely be returning. :)

Wow, very talented. It looks almost identical. One thing I have really wanted to get into is painting. I have looked at canvases and paints but I'm always confused in which medium to work; oil, water, etc.

Beautiful job!
