For tonight’s class we are painting with acrylics. I am still on the fence with acrylics. This paint dries quickly. Too quickly for me.
I will admit, I struggled in tonight’s class. Acrylics is a different beast to work with. We were given a tray of tubes in different colors. Oh, I don’t need to mix that much tonight? I find I still do.
I painted a picture which I’m not too happy with. So, I was told by another artist that it’s okay to have a bad drawing or painting. It’s also okay to not show it in public. Hmmmm.
So, I will make an exception and actually show a “I’m not too happy” with my artwork here:
I do have tubes of acrylics at home. Maybe one day, I will finish this artwork in the proper way and do another post on acrylics.
My take away from class: I do not care for acrylics. It is unforgiving and dries quickly. Maybe artist grade acrylics are better? That’s okay I’ll stick with the other art mediums that I enjoy working with.
