canvas and have moved up to a larger size so that I could accentuate some areas a bit more. The other "thing" is that each painting; although of the same aea, will look different in some way.... takes away from the cookie cutter effect of things, and with brush mixing matching colors sameness is really impossible but what a wonderful learning experience.
I am using Liquitex soft body acrylic paints. I have tried several different brands of paint, surfaces, etc.
and have it narrowed down to my favorites....narrowing things down has been easier going on my own so to speak rather than following "directions" of what works for someone else. I am a very tight painter
so I have had to learn how to paint loose with a tight style. So how is that for achieving my own ones-ness. It is such a rewarding feeling to paint effortlessly... and not struggle unless I am learning how to paint something I have not painted before .... as it was with the rocks for this painting.
