Hey first oil painting

I look at oils all the time, but never really thought about them until I studied The Last Duchess and read the Picture of Dorian Gray even and then I got really fascinated with them.

Its completely different from acrylics and what have you, mainly because they're so expensive. It actually took me months to afford all the colours one at a time seriously.

But no really it's that they are really slow. It takes literally days for a layer to dry. Its good though, the theory is the same as digital painting but oils are just better in every way apart from those things, they're fun to use. Anyone will tell you that.

It's even worse in person.
