View from Houndkirk Moor

Another month means another pay day! This month as a treat I bought myself some oil paints. I decided to go for the Winsor and Newton, Griffin Alkyd, fast drying range and I've got to say I'm impressed. Having never used oils before I did a couple of small tests before deciding I needed paint something more substantial. It's going to take me a while to get used to how the paints behave and react, but already I'm loving the fact that colours I've mixed on the palette don't dry out, like they do with acrylics.
