I decided to give the water mixable oils a try again and have been working with them for most of the month.  With the help of inexpensive tutorials called Artbytes by Carol Marine on the Daily Paintworks website, I feel like I'm starting to make progress.   

WHITE RABBIT #1 water soluble oil on canvas 6x6 inches

Besides the tutorials on the site, there are challenges.  One is to paint an apple or other fruit in 10 minutes then do another and another to fill the canvas.  I've done several canvases of these.

                       APPLES water soluble oils, 9x12 inches

The next challenge for me is figuring out how to take a decent photo of an oil painting.

Le défi des pommes est magnifique... A vous toute seule vous avez peint le pommier tout entier !...
J'adore cette peinture au pichet blanc... Il y a tant de douceur et j'aime sa composition.
Gros bisous

So many mediums, so many choices! I love oils, haven't tried the water mixables. So much is trial and errors! Although, I don't think you have any errors in your watercolor and gouache paintings! Love your watercolor cabbage!1
