This project was never completed due to personal complications. I think I got as far as 10 but never got around to posting them. I would like to try this again in the future and will let you if I do.
This is my Day 2 of the #30paintingsin30days challenge. I mixed my own colours for this one which I normally don't do with acrylics. I thought the colours would make a good beach scene so I went with it! I love how the colours seem to glow, especially that peachy orange. I have to work on my contrast but for Day 2 I'm happy and enjoyed the process of making this one.
I decided to give oil paint a try ( a real try this time) and after much deliberation and research decided to buy from Kama Pigments, a small batch company located in Montreal. I also decided that a 30 day challenge would give me the time and consistency to get a feel for my new medium. I will post my progress here, but also on my Facebook page and Instagram accounts. If you are on Instagram you can follow me and my hashtag #trefiakart so that you never miss my posts.
For my first oil painting I thought I'd recreate the moon from a previous painting I did. I had the same colours so I wanted to see how the oils behaved in comparison to the acrylics. All I can say is that they are completely different! Some of my observations while painting this were:
Please follow my adventure with oils. They won't be masterpieces, don't expect that. This is a learning journey for me and hopefully by the end I will have a better grasp of how my new paint works and how it will work for me.
I will keep you updated on my latest work and perhaps some insight into my creative process.
