This is my second time using oil, I haven't got a clue how to play with it...

It's also the first time I draw/paint portraits without a reference... have no idea who she is and just followed my brush.... turned out kinda look like myself, and the mouth is really really weird... Is there some kind of eraser for oil paintings...? Anyone?

Any way, I kinda liked it, and am really impressed that I made the whole thing within less than one hour from scratch... I guess it gives you more freedom once you don't have to make your art look like someone real.... lol...

I'd never be able to freehand an oil painting, this looks really good :]

haha, I saw someone on youtube teaching some technique called dry brushing- using a dry brush and applying a little paint, and draw like you're using pencil. So I figured I'd give it a try, turns out kinda cool.... haha......

but then I sprayed some waterproof shoe spray on it.... have no idea what I was thinking..... and the whole thing just went into a blur......
