I have had paint withdrawal so I had to run and paint a flower. I actually painted this one in acrylic because although the oil paint is so absolutely wonderful--it is a bit of an ordeal for a quick painting. I am not sure if I have the patience for oil paint although I love it. I am done with my 6 week class and enjoyed it so much. I learned a lot and learned that I have a long way to go if I want to learn to paint realistically. The $64,000 question is...do I really want to do that...paint realistically?? Well, I will have to think on that one. I will post my black and white egg on the next post. It is the other value study that I did--by the hardest.
