Wow, I'm just in love with this. I've been debating if I should try oil and I think you've made up my mind for me. I can't wait to try oils. I was afraid that I might not be patient enough but I will try to be I'm sure that to get such beautiful work like yours it can't happen over night...:)

Thank you :) Oils are great - but you do need to have patience. I do a lot of layering and letting the paint dry in between to get the colors and details in. If you try to do it all at once, you could end up with mud :)

That is very kind of you, thank you so much. I will let you know when I get the paints. Actually, what main colors do you recommend I should buy first? Oil paints here in Australia are ridiculous in price so I don't want to be wasting money just to begin. I was told to start with the student grade?

Cheers,
Arnaldo

Nothing wrong with student grade oils. Get the best brand that you can though.

I would start with a limited palette. One thing it is cost effective. AND, you can do a whole painting with just 3 or 4 colors and white (I do this a lot) One of my favorite combos is Cobalt Blue (or Ultramarine Blue), Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, and Alizarin Crimson. The crimson is one of those colors that will reach out and grab your clothes - so be careful. hahaha And a very little bit of it goes a long way in mixing. I always get Webers Permalba White if I can. Has a good consistency and comes in good sized tubes. You can mix a lot of colors with just this palette, and/or come pretty close to most. The Alizarin Crimson and Blue together make a great black, by the way. And the limited number of colors will have the added benefit of tying the painting together when you are done. Also, a great way to learn !!

And brushes, a disposable palette (tear away disposable sheets), and a palette knife for mixing. A canvas, of course. And you should be good to go
