oil painting

water-based oils

My sometimes careless approach to cleaning up has led me to make friends with water-based oil paints.  

Like normal oil paints they take ages to dry (leaving lots of wriggle room for those of us that sometimes* forget to clean their brushes) … but also … they clean up with warm soapy water.  No stinky turps (hooray).  

Anyway, I bought some.  And I have been doing some landscape oil painting from photos I took along the great ocean road (I had one weekend at Airey’s Inlet and then the next at Kennett River … lucky me!)

This is a painting of Eagle Rock Parade.

And then I tried to paint a cockatoo that was sitting on the balcony at Kennett River.  They’re workshops in progress!
