Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.


Oil Paint Sticks!

My sketch for today. Just got a set of oil paint sticks and am trying them out. This is a sketch on black sand paper, which the oil stick likes!

Terri, I love the energy in this…great use of impasto and colour. Which brand of oil sticks are you using? Do you use turps or a medium with these?

Hello Teri, how nice to join us!!
you mean oil bars??
I tried before but I didn't like them, I found them a bit hard.

Thanks for the comments, Maggie and Mariela! The oil sticks are Shiva (Richeson) with no medium, just straight from the stick. Mariela, these are called sticks and are really nice and soft.
