The greatest part in working with oil paints, is probably the fact, that the piece will undergo constant changes. Nothing basically stays like it is. When I first started using oil paints, this actually, has been the most scary part for me too. You'll work with layers, and different to all other painting materials, oil paint makes you start with the dark and bright the colors, while adding lighter and more muted ones throughout the process. Things can look pretty ugly in the beginning. Almost like a kids painting, but you gotta be brave and keep on rocking. It'll be fine. At some point. As another advantage of oils is, you can keep on working forever. Oil paint doesn't dry easy. So, when I came out with this weird, pink color themed, portrait over the last two days, it made me nervous only for a little while and then, I've decided to ignore the awkwardness and dive into it. Knowing by the last brushstroke, it'll look totally different anyway. Enough for today; I am dirty and the studio air feels heavy from all those turpentine fumes, hanging around. Off to the shower and for some heartwarming spinach pizza. See you tomorrow.
