Experiment with oils...

8"x10" oil and enamel on canvas
Well, it's not the best composition but it was a successful experiment. I used oil paint from the tube, you know, the traditional stuff, then I used black oil based enamel that you buy from the hardware store. The two paints so far seem to be getting along. I have ideas for using this mix on a larger scale.

This is supposed to be a painting of bourbon in a "rocks glass" sitting on a cocktail napkin. It's another beginning.

Whew hoo!

The black enamel makes this painting pop. I would love to see something on a larger scale

I really like this as an abstraction and how the lines move the eye.
