Oil painting practice

Water-mixable oil on acrylic paper. I struggled a lot with the fossilized nautilus, but once the paint dried, I was able to save it by adding the little details.

I scanned these at a fairly high resolution, mainly so I can appreciate up-close the physical properties of the materials I used. One of my favorite things about traditional mediums is the texture and markmaking. Seeing each individual brushstroke, the texture of the paint left by the brush, the tiny imperfections.... I love it!
