My problem with painting is I like to get it all done in one or two sittings. I usually make a rough sketch of what I want and then paint. The longest piece of art I worked on, aside from school projects, was a drawing of my 2 dogs (in 2006) which took me 2 weeks. :)

Thanks, guys! I got some new paint so hopefully things will be easier now. I got two new greens (muted shades, thank goodness!), and a yellow....Eek, I cant believe I didnt have a yellow!! @_@

And a new liner and shader brush, awww yeah.

Hopefully working on it tonight!

I understand what you mean. Its not as hard as it seems, but i would rather do sketches and shadowing. Shadowing is a bit hard, but with practice its easy.

I love love love mixing colors!! With oil, you really need a thinner in order to mix them well. Acrylic blends easily for me but I never "measure" what I put into a mix and therefore (by Murphy's Law) I never make enough and spend half an hour trying to reproduce it!! :D

The recent painting I did of my kitty took 2 days because his tabby coloring was so difficult to create :)
