Ok, so I've started painting. These first few pics are studies I did on tracing paper. Tracing paper is a great surface to practice on. It's cheap, the oil paint doesn't soak through, and it's a really nice, smooth surface.
These were 20 min to an hour each.
This is the final piece. I think I spent three sessions on this, a few hours each session.

YES! I have some amazing sheets of tracing paper but I had no idea what to use it for, now I can finally practice some oil painting. Great stuff, Emily. I see great things for you in the future, hell right now it's looking superb, I'll definitely be back for updates.

tracing paper, thats genius. Thankyou for sharing, those paints are juicy, enjoying your studies very much
edit: with the tracing paper, did you stretch it onto some sort of board or something? or is it just on a pad of tracing paper? - and did you prime them with gesso? thanks

Dabaers--thank so much.
Idiot Apathy--lol. Yeah, you should try it out.
Ellingsworth--thanks so much! you are too kind.
Teh Gosu--thank you!
AlexC--I didn't stretch the tracing paper, I just left it on the pad and ripped the sheets off when I was done with them. I didn't have to gesso it, the paint doesn't soak through.
MeTal-Mike--thanks so much.
dorian--sure thing! you're doing very nice work yourself.
patdzon--yeah, it's great for quick, easy studies.
Ok, so I did a painting of an apple.
This is my tracing paper study. You can see I was trying to work with broken color.
Here is the apple in progress. It's actually a different apple from the one in the study, so that's why the shape is different. I can't remember if this is after the 1st or 2nd session.
This is the finished piece. I did three sessions on this, with one more session where I re-worked the background.
