My half hour of doodling each morning lets me try new things. This morning I broke open the seal on a set of student-grade oil paints I bought, probably 2 years ago. I have been wanting to venture into oils but I've been afraid to step away from the comfort of fast-drying, predictable acrylics. This morning the lovely bunch of daffodils I brought home from the store were begging me to capture their sunshine. So I decided to go for it.
Of course now I want more. Should I just be bold and attempt a full painting? Or maybe I just doodle some more until I get a better feel for how these things work. Or maybe I just get to work on the pile of projects that are sitting here waiting for my attention!
