I think that I have discovered a medium that I will stay with for awhile. I feel like I have been on a discovery project for the last couple of years…playing around with lots of different mediums and subjects. The oil paint sticks are awesome! So, my plan is to commit to them for the next 12 months and see how the work goes.
Not to say I am going to put away my pens and watercolor type mediums…I love those for sketches. Now that I have decided on the medium, I think I will be able to focus on my subject matter in a more serious and planned way. I need to get back to a sketch a day to continue to improve my drawing skills.
Feeling good about making some specific choices for the next few months!

Sounds and looks great! What brand of oil stick did you decide to go with (or do you have a preference)?
Thanks Laura! I have been using the Shiva brand for these and I like them…but they are harder than the R&F brand that I recently tried. I am going to to a small study with the R&F brand and I will let you know which one I like best.
Thanks, I appreciate that!
Congratulations, how exciting to find a medium that you love so much, looking forward to see how you progress with it in the coming months. Karen
