FINALLY learning to oil paint

And I started with a portrait. This was maybe not a good idea, as starting points go, but my entire goal in this endeavor is to have giant pretentious portraits of my family on my walls. With all the cats and chickens in them. Maybe with neck ruffs and velvet coats. (For the kids, not the cats and chickens. ALTHOUGH…)

So far I have learned that color is stupid and I hate hands so much. Don’t speak to me of hands. I am only going to paint pictures of handless people from now on. *throwing paint brush*

I’ll get the hang of it, though. I have a fleet of tiny canvases ready to go, and I am going to do one study a week until I am good at this thing. And then it’s GIANT PRETENTIOUS PORTRAIT TIME.
