Painting in Oil

A short time back, I started questioning what my drawings would appear like if they were
painted. I have been a huge fan of graphite - telling stories in black and white and all of the
shades of grey in between.

After a year of questioning myself, I gave in to the thought and started painting in oil. I am
captivated by it. Strangely enough, I feel that my graphite artwork has improved, as I continue to
master the techniques of painting in oil.

The ability to tell a story still remains the same, and so my story unfolds.
