I figured I would try to do a quick painting of this image. As always quick is never actually quick. Recently I've been frustrated with acrylics in that it requires so many layers to do what I want it to. I am considering trying oils again at some point after the move in order to see if I'm ready for them. I know it's a different world... but we'll see how the next couple paintings progress... so talk to me then.
