I'm really proud of this piece because I've was getting my butt kicked in my painting class this entire past semester. Nonetheless, Richard Houston, my teacher, really helped me understand how to approach oil painting from a more practical perspective. The key really was to understand the medium and how it works. Oils can be very tricky...and toxic. So this winter break Im hoping to toss a few more paintings together using all that I learned in his class..and when I do I'll post them too!
