I am still trying with oil paints, and I am getting the hang of it, a little. But I feel like I am limited to only some specific kinds of images. I want to know exactly how I am going to do the whole painting before I start out with it. I have done a few paintings that I like really well, but I am in awe when I check out other artists work. Especially their larger works. I am so impressed with what other people can do, it is inspiring. Especially when the finished product looks effortless and even as if it were fun to do. I see their work and hope that I can someday learn to paint that well, and enjoy it so much. It always feels like a struggle with the elements for me to finish a painting. But when it is done, and I like it, I am so happy that I forget how hard it was, and am amazed at how simple and easy the painting sometimes looks. To me this one looks easy. Thats how I want them to look when I'm finished.
