1. oil painting (Greyscale)
These paintings are for my media testing (for the portrait drawing project)
The first one is an oil painting. During the painting process, I was going through a lot of pain because of oil is so hard to use to paint. Because first, my style of drawing is not the smooth kind, I love to use strokes to show the difference between the things that I am drawing. Second, putting paint directly onto the painting surface before mixing it well is also something that I really like to do because it creates a dreamy color.
In the second picture, the media that I was using was acrylic, which I have been working for a long long period of time, so I feel more comfortable using this. I like putting color directly on to my painting surface and use a spatula to draw.
The most important reason that makes me like using acrylic over using oil is that oil drys too slow and I am a fast worker. I tend to finish my work really fast, so if the paint drys too slow, I cannot work in layers.
Comparing these two type of media that we are using, I like and feel comfortable when using acrylic way more than oil.
