Winsor & Newton Artisan Oils

I have a small studio, okay I admit it, it's what used to be my brothers bedroom but it sounds posher if I say my studio. There isn't room for a bed now anyway! As I was saying it's a very small room and I wanted to try oil painting but was concerned about any fumes in such a confined space so I tried W & N water mixable oils - I LOVE working with oils - here are a few of my first efforts from last year.

My first try with them - Rudbekia painted from a seed catalogue and below Parrot Tulips from a book on painting flowers.

I set up a still life with these oranges and lemons and I took so long over it the fruit was starting to go mouldy.
