Water-colour or oil painting

How choose what corresponds most

For your first painting course, how choose between water-colour and oil on canvas ?
Let me give you some principal differences to help your choice…



Water-colour is fluid and light, playing with transparancy and sweetness.
Oil paint is a thick medium, giving a solid and denser result…


Paper and brushes we use for water-colour are easy to clean and transport  and not bulky… 
Oil paint, needs a canvas and an easel to paint with, and  drying time before transport.


Unlike what people often think, oil paint is easier to practice than water-colour in wet on wet technique…

But what is most important

What is most important is NOT difficulty of the technique, or transport, or whatever… What is most important is how you feel when looking at a water-colour painting or an oil on canvas painting… Which technique attracts you most…

Take a minute…

Close your eyes, take a deep breath…

Open them again, and look at these two paintings…

Which one touches you most ?…Which one leaves you something substantial behind ?…

Here we are…now you know ! So…?
