Into the scary world of oil painting

Hmmm, so I think it might have been mentioned before that I am a little afraid of oils.

Mostly because it seems so malleable, if that’s the right word. You put a line in pen down, or even in pencil, and for the most part it stays there. Paint has all that smudging, smearing, mixing and rubbing out going on. Very indefinite.

But it’s also something I actually want to learn to use, so I just have to jump in. Or at least tip-toe in. I had a little time today to break out some burnt sienna and a weird opaque yellowy thing.
