acrylic on mat board 10 x 10
The girl, Three, needed a boy friend - so here he is - another run at acrylics. I actually kinda like the acrylics. I'm getting used to them a bit. Like any kind of painting for me - I need to use more paint. There is some weird thing in me that I can't seem to get enough paint on the brush. I actually believe it would be easier to paint with more paint because you can move it around the surface and blend it and stuff. So, I'll try again - more paint, more paint.
In wax - thin layers are the trick. But, I have to say... that I notice a difference in my wax faces after I've painted a few acrylic faces. So, back and forth, I go - pondering my learnings a little more.
