Here's to another year
of opportunities and blessings
to you! :)
Starting a new piece this week and decided to try a solid color for the background.
I'm finding that the longer I use acrylic paint (especially for flesh tones), the more I miss my oils! They blend so well and allow for more time to work with multiple colors at once. The best part about enjoying both types is that both mediums can be married into one piece together, simply by layering one before the other...acrylic as a base, then oil on top. What a great thing! Mixing in slow-dri fluid blending medium with the acrylic alone allows me to get that oil-like feel and consistency.
I'm looking forward to incorporating some water-soluble oils with upcoming pieces!
