A brand new canvas

It's been such a long time since I've started an oil painting, but today out of the blue I decided to start one. It's not finished by far, what you see here is just the beginning, about half of a first layer. I did make some more progress today, but I might be at it a whole lot longer.

Normally I use very light colors, so now I decided to give myself a little challenge. I started by painting the whole canvas black and then added some dark colors.

I also didn't make a sketch like I usually do, but just started painting. The idea isn't set in stone, so it might turn out different from what I have in mind now.

Anyway it's a fun project and I look forward to finding out where it'll take me.

P.S. Tomorrow I'm picking up my first two batches of pictures made with the Diana F+! how exciting!

  3. YES, I did get your package, thank you SO much! The chocolate is delicious!

  4. That's so cool that you paint! One of my fantasies is that I just pick up a paint brush one day and discover that I'm a natural:) Have fun!
