my first acrylic painting, yay!

Lazing, Acrylic on canvas, 12X16, July 2010

I like painting quietly.

For two nights now I’ve been experimenting with a new medium…acrylics.  Water-based, so I can paint indoors, yay.  Dries super quickly, so results are almost instant.  Very interesting possibilities, but trade offs are: not much blending allowed and can’t mix big color batches in one go (the paint dries up quickly!).  Challenge is to work on color mixing, and mixing the same shades again and again.

Just the same, excited for the many adventures ahead.  I have a new toy, time to play play play!
