I have been taking a painting workshop with Rachel Teannalach to learn how to use oil paints. I haven't done much painting since college and we did not use oils in college; we used acrylics. Rachel invited us students to join her in a paint out at sunrise in the foothills. We actually arrived a little before the sunrise. There was a sliver of moon out and several of us headed up the trail to find our painting location.
Here is Carrie, Rachel and Lorna working on their paintings.
One piece of paper is bright orange because with oil paints the surface needs to be primed before painting. I chose an orange color. I'm not ready to show you the finished pieces just yet. Let's just say they don't look anything like what I was seeing.
Here is Lorna's set-up and painting. She was using the box to hold her painting while she was working on it.
Although I am still not use to working with oil and get frustrated with it, it was a fun experience to go on the paint out.
