Artwork Description

So that's my first attempt to oil... I think, it could have gotten worse.
I wanted to use only a few, but contrastive colors and light and shadow.
At first, I really didn't like the medium: sticky and smelling, but there were these colors lying in my cupboard...
You can do great things with it... work at certain areas very long etc.
Well, I think I'll try oil again ^_-

You definitely should try oils again. This is great! I like that liny look. And the hair is great also Cool

Thank you very much! ^_^ I really hope to improve my skill, but I still can't get how other can do so tiny and beautiful things with oil. Well, seems that I will have to practice a lot!
As for the background - I always have trouble to find one... I'm very happy that it seems to be fitting.

Yes, the scratches... I liked to do them very much and was happy with the result! ^_^
Thanks a lot!

I think this is a terrific painting for a first time with oils, Annika. From my experiences with oil paint, I find the more you use it the eaiser it gets. I really like the background. It's sort of spiney and foreboding.

I have to say, I really love the scratch marks (with black blood - brrr).

Art at its best.
