I’ve been a bit impatient with my art lately, things just haven’t worked out as I would like, so I tried a little comparison.
What do I like about oils….easy to fix or cover up mistakes and easy framing
What do I like about watercolor…easy cleanup, put the water on the paper then add the paint, dabbing with a tissue gives a nice highlighted look, can nearly finish in a day and it takes up a lot less room.
I am happier with the watercolor. The composition is better. The oil cardinal is too big and not enough of the tree shows. I still have some oils to finish but I will probably steer clear of them for a while.
