Homer's World, Oil on canvas, 24" x 36"

Links to oil painting and watercolor painting portfolios are located here. I am often asked, which I prefer, oil or watercolor. I always answer, “It depends”. It depends sometimes on the subject and sometimes on my mood. Things of a more ethereal nature, I tend to gravitate towards watercolor painting. Flowers come to mind as I say that, yet I do flowers in both watercolor and oil paint. Rugged things I almost always go for oil paint, mountains come to mind. So, it depends seems to be a pretty good answer when it comes to deciding between oil paint and watercolor paint.
