My first purely acrylic painting, and so far, I like! Got a set of Liquitex Basics after hearing a rave review from Lisa at Lachri Fine Art. She does beautiful work, and her review and product comparison was one of the reasons I chose the Polychromos colored pencils (which I adore), so I thought it was worth taking a chance and seeing what those little bottles could do.
I started with very watered down acrylic craft paints I had from many moons ago. This initial layer gave me the feeling of a watercolor background, and was lots of fun to do.
Then the other night, I went back in with a palette knife only and three colors from the Basics set: Phthalo Blue, Cad Yellow Medium and Titanium White. I know abstract work isn’t everyone’s bag, but I’m really enjoying it. It’s a wonderful way to be expressive, to learn a new medium, and to really have fun playing with color. SO many wonderful colors in that set! Based on my (limited) experience, two thumbs up so far.
I hope you have a wonderful week. I think I can smell Friday. It’s rich and warm and chocolate. 🙂 Peace.
