Hay guys and ladyes, here is my new little project for you.
As you probably know oil panting has been used on furniture for centuries.
And it is one of the very important specializations in art and furniture conservation/restoration fields.

Well after thinking for some time I have decided to try it myself.
It is a small wooden panel – actually thin ply coated with gesso and sanded a little bit.
It took me over a month to finish it.
There is a say – if you want to change the world start from yourself, so I did.
The size is 155mm X 110mm.
I am rather pleased with the result as a first try plying with an oil paint I think it did not go to bad.

Your picture of an eye is very well done. Quite realistic.
As a young artist I used to draw and paint many eyes. I was fascinated. The subject must be executed well in order to look well.
Nice indeed.
A month you say? Mmm. How long did you work at each session?
Getting such a smooth appearance with oils does take patience and skill.
Keep going. young man, you’re onto something.

Thank you very much for your comments.
Don, every session about 15 – 20 min can not do it longer becouse of pain in a head as some one is squizzing it with a giant hand, probably presure of concentration I think, and the amount and varaity of color is making me colorless rather fast, so I have to brake and go to my wooden projects.
I think I will try a still life now, then will see what hapens.
To be honest I did not expect that it will go well as it went, so I am pleased with the result so far.
