First oil painting after a long break.
1 Attachment(s)
I've made my first oil painting on canvas after a pause of nearly 40 tears due to shift work in a hospital, and I'm not perfectly content with the outcome, and I don't really know why. All of my co-workers like it very much, but I wanted to hear from you all if the painting could be ok. Thank you very much for your time.

Looks great to me, but I am a beginner. Was this done in part with a knife?

Hello Richardson11150, thank you for your reply. I did this painting using only two painting knives, and the larger one of the two was used to mix the colors too, cleaning it to apply the colors mixed.

I’m not very familiar with impasto, so I’m not the best judge but I think it looks great! What size is your canvas? How long did it take that to dry?

I just started painting and posted a few pictures of my first three pieces on here yesterday. Take a look and let me know what you think!

I'm happy that you like it. Thanks. When I started painting it I didn't have too much time, so I made it in about three days (about two hours each day), and I had chose a relatively small canvas: it's 60 cm by 45 cm (about 23.62 by 17.722 inches). The painting was finished in July, it's already dry to the touch, but I'm wainting until January to put a final varnish on to it. I'll surely look for your pictures, and I'll tell you what I think about them. Maybe we have a similar genre or style?
