WIP of a piece for a show in October
Acrylic on canvas
No medium…Lots and lots of thin layers, crosshatching, color matching (VERY small increments of value change) and luck? I tend to space out when I paint, too, and I think I must do some kind of voodoo magic because I don’t really know how to explain it, myself.
I will have a video or picture mash up, soon.
Almost done <3
Acrylic on gessoed woodblock.
If there was a demand, absolutely.
Shoot me an email or note or…just like this post if you’re interested. I would love to start making some prints.
I have insane amount of respect for teachers, so that comes as a big compliment. Thank you. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to capture the process I use, as it is hard if not impossible to explain linguistically.
The moment I have captured it on film or in a picture motif, I will be posting it. I would love to supply a teacher with techniques to install in the youngins’ :>

I’d kiss em. #wip #painting #acrylic
Thank you so much :o)
And it’s kind of complicated…I started with oil and absolutely loved how colors blended together…but I hated the mess/drying time/ loose-ness/ lack of control. Acrylic is fast drying and deliberate, which is just lovely. There’s no easy way to explain how I blend colors other than to say that I color match. If I’m working on the skin, I start with the main tone, then gradually add more darkness/light/color to that paint puddle in very, very minuscule increments. Imagine a puddle of pink paint that has white added to it one drop at a time and you’ll slightly understand what I’m doing.
Some/most artists glaze over dried paint with a darker tone in order to add shadows or highlights. This drives me absolutely batshit insane and I cannot stand how messy it looks. I do everything manually which I do not recommend if you have a short attention span and or a life.
God. I need to just make a tutorial. I PROMISE.
