Playing around with paint - this one is water soluble oil paint on paper. I've never used oils before and don't like the smell of turp in my house, but when I saw these water soluble ones I thought Hmmmmm..... Has anyone had any experience with them? The pic is a little dark at the bottom just due to me slapping the painting on the counter and taking a quick pic with the iphone.
This one is acrylic and crayon on bristol board. You can tell I was in the studio playing away having a good old time slapping paint around.
I like the brightness of the yellow in the second one - what do you think? I also think that if I want to use paper again with the oils, I'd gesso the paper first - it soaked up the paint like crazy without some kind of base.
Right now I'm sitting at home in a room with lots of windows - and I was planning to be inside most of the day watching big fluffy snowflakes come down and pile up outside. Picture a happy me with headphones on listening to a book, and knitting away on the sofa. "They" predicted a storm - and we expected to get around 6 inches or more. But no...today they are saying "haha" it's really not going to happen. There are snowflakes coming down but they're tiny and barely sticking. So there you have it. A very non-snow winter this year. Not much fun. Easy to drive in, no plowing needed but not what we expected.
I hope you all have a lovely romantic exciting Valentines day and get your hearts filled with love.
