If this is your first oil painting you are well on the road to success, take it from me. Very well done

I agree with Max. Really well done for your first oil painting.

Yes, indeed - let's see more...

Your FIRST??? Aaargh..... I think that's extraordinary - have you painted in acrylic before? Well, you must have done, because if this is your first painting ever, I'm giving up... Very good work, congratulations; there'll be no holding you.

Hi Rosalinda, as everyone above has said, a very good "first" for oil paints. I love the water, reflections and the boats, and the way you have repeated the sky colours in the water. I love painting seascapes and only work in oils, so may I make a suggestion that hopefully will help you? May I introduce you to the Fan brush, one of my most favourite of all brushes, try it on a similar sky to this one, and use it to gently blend one colour into the next, I think you will like the result. Well done.

I like the streaks in the sky; I wouldn't alter it at all. A very nice atmospheric painting. There seems to be some white spots on it; is it reflections from a glass or maybe a dusty camera lens?

thanks for all your kind really is my first oil,so thanks mum for the starter set of paints...!I know nothing about how to use them,and as I had ruined the canvas by trying to seal it with pva glue in the freezing cold,I thought I would share my attempt through a set of blogs... It all started under a blog called A fresh start.....there are the other stages there and photos,after all,the canvas was ruined,so I had nothing left to loose by sharing the fun I had doing this.Thanks for your suggestions..a fan brush sounds such fun...a trip out tomorrow I think !

Hang on Studio Wall
