Exploring Oil Paints

Here are the paintings from my experiment in oil painting. I took a watercolor elective last quarter but it was very relaxed and didn't really dive into the heavier aspects of painting, so I am considering this course my first heavy duty painting course. These are posted roughly in the order in which they were painted and there is a lot of change as I became more experienced. All the figures were done at varying time lengths during class and the last two are semi-finished long term paintings. I still want to work on them some more when I get back home and have some time to myself. I feel like in my 3rd year of college, I'm really only just beginning to learn about art. All of next year I plan to explore as many mediums as I can possibly squeeze into my schedule, though working on my thesis will certainly prove to be an obstacle. I'm very excited about this! :)
