I got two canvases and black and white oil paint for my birthday a little while ago, and am working on my first painting using professional art supplies. I’ve never used actual canvas before, and as much fun as I had with my last painting, pastels were not meant for thin paper. Good supplies, unfortunately, do not make me a good artist, but they definitely improve the experience. I’m a little surprised whenever I like something I make. But I do like this. I like the lines of it, and so far, it looks like I meant it to. Which isn’t my usual.
