Please see images below

It is my first try with Water soluble oils. They are very little paintings, 5X7, for my kitchen.
I am new to WSO, and new to painting, and I have a lot to learn.

Wow, you're a natural with these! All look yummy but those strawberries are just waiting for me to reach out and eat them!

Well done! How do you like the wso's? It looks as if you're very good with them

Thank you very much Jan, it's very kind of you.
I like WSO very much, it was difficult at beginning because with Holbein Duo water soluble oil it was sticky and gummy. But I tried with Artisan water soluble oil and it is almost perfect.
I can barely compare with traditional oil, because I have made only 2 paintings with TO, but it is almost similar. Maybe TO are a little easier because not sticky at all. WSO are perfect with Artisan thinner, but for upper layers, with water soluble oil, even with Artisan's it is a little gummy.
Anyway I like WSO a lot, and my asthma too!

Again, sorry for my English, and my eventual mistakes, I am french.

Very good job. I like the strawberries the most. Keep painting… the more you paint the better you get, and that my friend is the "secret sauce" to everything… Smile. I too enjoy painting small, as I can finish quickly complete a work in one or two sitting and at the same time improve my skills.

I would make a suggestion on "edges". Don't treat all edges the same. i.e. make some edges hazy and some sharp, this mimics how we see and does not seem like cut-outs. Try seeing some paintings of the modern master and see how they treat the edges and that would help a lot.
