I am often asked if my
works with acrylics as well as oils.
I decided I'd better try it and find out!
8 x 8 acrylic
This was so fun because it was so different!
I love how acrylics dry so fast, and you can fix things.
Although it makes it tempting to blend
so it's harder to leave brush strokes alone.
I loved doing this today.
I set up same way I do for oils,
using the same pallet and a gallery wrapped, grey toned canvas.
I chose a favorite image of a house that I have painted
many times before in oils.
I was so into it (and worried about the paint drying)
that I forgot to take progress images,
and it was fun!
After I painted the one in acrylic,
I found this (dark) image of an oil I did
February 4, 2006!
I guess the approach works with both.
I can't wait to explore this further!
Note: I'm teaching another
six week class at SSAC (#320)
beginning April 23.
