While looking for a job/doing thesis research, I figured I needed a stress reliever that did not involve watching all 9 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy (though that will probably happen this summer). I decided to paint Jasmine and Aladdin after rewatching the movie yesterday. The bottom coat is all acrylic and I’m using oil paints to paint it. I was afraid I was going to run out of oil paint so I figured a bottom coat wasn’t a bad idea. I am actually pretty happy with how it looks. I’ve never drawn Aladdin before since I rarely draw men.
I’ll post a finished picture when I am done. Can I just say, I love oil paints? They are so much richer than acrylics. Downside is, I tend to wear more oil paint than I do acrylic paint. Not exactly sure why.
The painting is already on my wall since my cat likes to step on wet paint. Last thing I need is him stepping into oil paint.
