(A sneak peek at my most recent Work-In Progress!)
I also wanted to take this opportunity to answer a couple of questions posed by 2 lovely and talented ladies, Nicola and Kat, last week...
"Are they done in acrylic or oils (or watercolors or pastels)?"
Both, last week's paintings and this week's work in progress are done in acrylics. I always use floetrol mixed with my paint to increase it's blendability. I love oils, but I don't love the clean-up, so acrylics it is!
"What sort of board do you use to paint on?"
Last week's paintings were created on 12x12 gallery wrapped canvases that had been covered in decorative papers first. (You can see the backgrounds in this post.)
This week, I am painting on an old cupboard door that I sanded and covered with old book pages.
Be sure to stop back this weekend because this painting is for Inspiration Avenue's owl theme (which means I have to finish it by Sunday morning)!
