White ibis at the park

The other day, I went to Michael’s to buy a set of oil paints and I met a nice young lady who was shopping in the paint isle. I was thinking of buying some water mixable oil paints and asked her if she knew anything about them. She said no, she painted mostly in acrylic. We kept talking, and I decided to not get the water mixable oil paints, as they acted a lot like watercolor, and I am interested in the creamy texture of oil paints. I like to paint with oil paint straight from the tube and don’t use solvents or linseed oil etc. to alter the texture of the paint. Anyway, by the time we got done talking and shopping, the young lady was buying a set of oil paints and the next day she painted something really nice and posted it on social media.

I wound up getting a new set of Winsor & Newtown oil paints. So last night, I tried them out and painted this in my studio based on a photo I took when I went for a walk in the park this fall. It’s a bird we see a lot of here in Florida – the White Ibis. Now available in my Society6 shop! I may put the original up for sale in my Daily Paintworks gallery, we’ll see.
