Maybe it’s because my boyfriend is obsessed with the ocean, or maybe it’s because I really want to do a nautical theme set at work, but this little guy appeared the other day. First use of oil pastels with oil paints and a love for their combination. While acrylics are what I believe to be one of the most popular paint mediums, I find them so unforgiving and not as versatile as what I can do with oils.
