In keeping with my goals to try to do nearly everything in art media, I’ve also done oil painting over the years and planned to continue. My primary goal with painting is to be as fluid and gestural with paint as I am with drawing methods. While I routinely employ painting technique with oil pastel turp. washes and mono-print ink overlays, its not the same as oil paint. I did finally make the transition and produced several paintings I’m happy with and hope to keep these skills up.
