I had no idea how different oils are from acrylics. I haven't gotten the hang of mixing paints or applying same to the canvas - so frustrating!
I used acrylics on the background - not so sure this was a good idea though. I waited until the acrylic paint was totally dry, but correcting "mistakes" on the foreground is really hard to do now.
I used charcoal pencil to draw rough figures - used my oil paints to add underpainting to my drawing. I'm having a hard time with the paint always being wet - I feel like I'm just making a big mess trying to blend the paints - details are scaring me - I've completely painted over the faces twice because I was really unhappy with how they were turning out. I know it's my first try with oils - but already I'm thinking about throwing them out! BAHHHH!!!
