This is what painting should feel like

Today feels like a little milestone: I finally started to work with oil paint. On paper still, to keep the pressure limited. While painting I caught myself thinking: This is what painting should feel like! Now I finally get it! Such an amazing feeling, the way the brush glides over the surface!
Still have to get used to the fact that oil dries very slowly and the colours keep mixing, also unintentionally. I guess I have to become much more patient in my work process but I am most determined to continue.
Love the shininess, the brightness of the colours – the smell!
Cleaning is much more intense though and the studio becomes one big mess.
