To celebrate today's special day - "Pączek z konfiturą"
by Sebastian Talar (oil on wood panel, 20 x 20 cm, 2016) :))):
The effect was horrible - a primitive artist like Nikofor painted better.
You can't suddenly start painting at university age without any previous training and expect great results :))) To paint well you have to first learn to draw at all and then it takes a lot of practice to do it well.

1. Paper isn't the best for oil painting. Primed canvas or primed wood panels are much better.
2. In order to paint with oil paints you have to know the basics on how to do it.
3. People are one of the most difficult subjects to draw/paint. It's better for beginners to start with something simpler, imho, in order not to get discouraged and to learn the basics.
In other words - you can't just decide out of the blue to climb Mount Everest without any prior experience in climbing and expect not to die in the process :)))) 😉
