A New Love?

I decided to try something new... So I took my weekly Michaels 40% off coupon and bought a set of water mixable oil paints!  I've painted wildlife with pastels... and used acrylics for backgrounds... But I've never used any kind of wet medium to actually "paint" things... animals, flowers, landscapes, still lifes...  Well... here is my first attempt...

I don't think my Goldfinch turned out too badly... and I really like painting with these paints!  I think I will enjoy learning to use them! Be honest... What do you think?


  1. Love this, Dianne! What is the brand of the paints? (I have a coupon too :)

  2. Dianne! this is great! we have been so into birds lately here that this is the perfect fit to our theme!!!

    I love your new paints...and yes, I'll stay tuned into what you create!

    thanks for coming by for a visit....!!!

  3. This looks like a great start. I love the bird, it looks wonderful it is so fun to discover a new "toy"!

  4. How beautiful! I love the soft colors and you are very talented, my friend! ♥

  5. What do I think? I think it is fantastic and considering you have never used the wet paints before, good for you :)
