Just finished this 12" x 12" Oil on Gesso board. I'm kinda new to oil paints but I really love the way they paint doesn't really darken as much as acrylics. hope to try more of these in the next coming weeks.

John, your work with oils is masterful. No other way to put it. The textures in the grasses and trees is excellent, and the depth you've created is superb. The river is brilliant, wow on the reflective surface.  :heeha: Banner job!   :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val
