THE INTUITION OF OILS
As a medium, oil paints are malleable and friendly they are beautiful colours, fluid and forgiving. This makes them easy to work with. Oils are one of my favourites!
Oils are both tactile and intuitive. They have a versatility that encourages experimentation, which speaks to my intuitive nature. Oil takes a while to dry, so you have time to change your mind, try different ideas and combinations. My creativity is in the moment, and oil is a medium that works beautifully with my instincts.
As an artist, my paintbrush becomes an extension of what Im thinking
sensing. This may vary from one moment to the next, as I contemplate my subject Oil is merely a tool, a conduit for my artistic instincts to capture and reflect how I see and experience a subject.
