Oil painting on 11 x 14 canvas, using alla prima technique (wet-on-wet)

took about 4-6 hours. reference used [link] . Still need to practice more though; can't control the brush as well as i'd like yet. I keep wiping off colours i put on before with the brush accidentally when trying to put on more colours. Maybe I'm using too much oil to dilute it.

It looks great. I'm having trouble with oil as well. It's fun but.....I'm working on it.
