peacock…

Description – peacock. signed as RK in english, Apr 10 

Medium – oil on canvas. Learnings from last painting and some youtube videos on oil painting gave me courage to use oil.

Size – x X x

Details – this painting is more earthly and needs no explanation. This took 15 days to dry up compared to moments for acrylic. Has thick layers of paints. For experimentation oil is a good medium as you can have enough time to touch up if you dont like what you did. Tried to use all the colors I could but could not get them to come out nicely as I had expected. May be I should allow one layer to dry up before using other colors but by then I may lose interest to finish up the painting. The random strokes are attempt to emulate impressionist style of painting but look like lot of catchup to do.

Time taken to complete – 3 hours at stretch with touchups here are there for next 2 – 3 days.
