Oils versus Watercolors in Crockett
Attended an enjoyable Randy Sexton oil painting demo in Crockett recently. Compared to watercolor, how different oil painting appears to be . . . add a dark paint or a light paint whenever and wherever you wish! Don't like it? Scrape it right off! I wandered the streets of Crockett longing to butter a canvas with oils!
Watercolor painting, on the other hand, demands a progression from light to dark. My every daub is visible for all eternity! BUT watercolors are also compact and lightweight and I carry my watercolor satchel everywhere, even on four-mile hikes! I'm sticking with watercolor. (I can still try oil paints at home, right?)
