Traditional Oil Painting (TOP)

This challenge closed over 6 years ago.

The Challenge

This challenge is to showcase metals, which (in my opinion) is one of the most complicated elements to paint. Enter any metal (copper, steel, tin…) but a metal object must be an important element of the composition.

Artwork must be in oils and included in the Oil Painters Group gallery.

All other rules are the same as the group guidelines.

**Oh, and if you’ve got nothing in your portfolio already, you’ve got two weeks to…

Show me what you’ve got!

Good Luck
