In March, I wrote about going back to painting and look what Barry got me!! A kickass oil painting starter kit above - it has oil colours, canvas, brushes, palette and even an easel!! (Poodle not included).
The easel also functions as storage for the colours, brushes and palette - so, can organise better. It's so cool!
I had been talking a lot about doing oil painting just weeks before that and because I have only done watercolours, he even got me a step-by-step to oil painting book!
I have even found the perfect spot to do painting - on the patio, with soft music from our trusty little black Bose soundock.
Now, I just need to get some solvent and linseed oil and to find that print suitable for a beginner and I am all set to paint!
My dream is to one day paint a scene from Venice like below in oil :
