finally - lego still life.

I've not touched oils in oh at least a decade. Six months ago I bought some of these watersolulable oils for an evening class. The class got cancelled so the oils stayed in the box. Until today.

What a reunion! Had completely forgotten what oil paint feels like. No wonder I've had trouble with painting, mucking about with low quality acrylics. Oils is the way to go apparently, especially now that the solvents are gone.

I set up a small light box and borrowed some starwars lego from my boy. Now I'm superdad apparently for being so awesome that I painted a stormtrooper. He also let me know he had some great ideas for what else I could paint that would be cool. :)
