I have discovered the glory that is oil paint!

Painting class is progressing nicely. Since moving into the world of color, we've done four or so paintings. Here are two of mine (pardon the low quality of the pics, they were taken with my cell):

This is the latest one I've done, still in progress. We've finally moved into the realm of the living (almost). We were only allowed to use the biggest brush we had; this was done with a 10 flat.

Here is a painting with some progress pictures.

Base tone of Burnt Sienna and Manganese Violet with a quick schematic outline.

Most of the important colors blocked in.

The finished painting. I couldn't get my camera to take a single in-focus shot of this painting for some reason...this is the best I have for now.

Thanksgiving draws near!
