Trying Oils - My First Oil Painting

Noordhoek - Oil on canvas


I have joined a new class with Margie Johnson - everyone in Cape Town knows her and has been to her classes! I thought that with the change from acrylics to oils I should go to one of the top teachers and boy oh boy am I learning fast!!! I am loving oils!!! I have discovered, though, that I really can't handle the smell of turps, even genuine turps makes me physically ill! I'm using white spirits and that seems to be working well. Heaven only knows how I am going to store this lot as it can take up to a year for oils to dry!!!! What an adventure!!!
