Paint Out Loud...the story behind the art
I'm starting a new painting - and I am going to work on a canvas that has about 3 failed paintings on it. Maybe the canvas is doomed - I don't know - but it has lots of great texture on it and often that can be a good way to start.
Sometimes, however, it just won't work - and if that happens this one will be tossed. Poor canvas can only hold so much paint.
So with high hopes for a successful day - here I go.
It is oil paint on the canvas and so it has to be oil paint to continue. Which is fine - I have been working in oils consistently for about 2 years and I like it.
I do think about some of the easy things with acrylics but in some ways I would have to learn again, so I'm sticking with oil paint for a while.
