|Detail - WIP / acrylic|
The new online classes have been fun.
I like bits & pieces of each of the paintings I've done,
but none of them hold together as a whole yet -
part of the learning experience:)
So far, the classes have included a messy mandala,
a painting with a creepy face,
and a couple of acrylic portraits.
I'm new to acrylics.
The beauty of them is that they dry very quickly so you can fix mistakes.
The downside is that they dry very quickly so your paint piles get goopy.
An acrylic paint extender would probably solve that problem.
Over the past few years, I've picked up a load of acrylic paint at yard sales
so there's lots to practice with.
Once I get the hang of it,
I'll be switching from loose canvas to cradled birch panels.
The classes are posted on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Scheduled for this week, so far:
a whimsical drawing lesson from artist Angela Kennedy.
