An example from my oil painting days: Robertson’s Marsh at Lake Sorell.
You may wonder why I have been showing a variety of artwork lately. The reason is that I have become a coloured pencil artist as a result of working with a broad range of art mediums over the years. I needed to find which medium was most suited to my ideas, personality and the way I see things.
Looking back to my stint as painter in oils in the late 1970s and early 80s, I realise that I enjoyed the product more than the process. The opposite applies to my work in acrylics. I think the main reason was the (then) slow drying times that really didn’t suit me and that’s where acrylics appealed to me. I find working in acrylics very therapeutic , but the finish (look) of oils appeals to me more.
