Using different media, don't underestimate yourself or the materials
Just want to say how using something like acrylic paint has made such a difference in some of my work. Most of the paintings here have sold, so they are not available. As I have informed many of my students, when I was coming along in school studying and doing art, acrylic paint was not as desirable as the newer paints available. In teaching others, I've found
If you have never used acrylics or tend to not care for them in the past, I encourage you to give them a go and see what you can do, you might be surprised. Remember you don't have to get so colorful, you can limit your palette to grays or just a little color. More on this I will be sharing next time. Oh, and enjoy the process no matter your style. Some of these paintings were achieved faster than others but I thoroughly enjoyed them all. I hope you do as well.
