Interview Dec/Jan 2010 (oil paint experiment)

Today I used oil paint for the first time, after feeling that watercolours would not suffice the biting tone of Interview. A couple things to note: it's messy, doesn't spread nicely & for some unbeknown reason, doesn't wash off with friendly H20. For want of not ruining my paintbrushes in the jungle that is oil paint, I used folded up post-it notes (and fingers) . Must invest in a more Ben Quilty approach.
