Storm Over The Tree Farm - My Very First Oil!

After finding a complete oil painting set at a thrift store, I painted this this morning.  I have so much to learn but I found that the things I learned from other medias were very helpful.

Oil is dark down first and watercolor is the opposite so I sort of messed up on that concept.  But, I had fun and it relieved my stress.

GOOD START.

I WANT TO TRY BUT, THE BIG BUT. IT'S LIKE WHEN SOMEONE CAN TAKE ME TO AN ART STORE. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT SUPPLIES TO START WITH. [BUT] I WILL TRY SOON. 73, I COULD BE THE NEXT GRANDMA MOSES.

Thanks Granny! I am a granny too. I did learn something today. Paint oils only outside! I have a terrible headache from the fumes. Maybe water solible oils have to be my thing.
