So, as everyone knows I am “self taught” with this art stuff. I am actually YouTube, Skillshare, and good old fashion trial and error. There are things I never “knew” but just knew they didn’t work. I’ve been watching The Art Sherpa on YouTube and she always says if you are having a problem with a painting.. it is probably the tools or products you are using, not the fault of the artist! So today, as I was “working” (I definitely consider all of the research I do and videos I watch to be one of the work portions of this art journey), that 1) your acrylic paint won’t bind if there is too much water involved… now I knew this… and in my classes that I teach I say… “woah! You have way too much water”!! 😂, and I know that if there is a spot on a painting that it seems the paint won’t stick… too much water has been used at some point in the painting. But NOW I know why… and I get to verbalize why at my next class 😊. 2) Acrylic brushes should be stiff so the paint can be pushed into to canvas. I have a few brushes that I always place at the tables for my painters… but I always suggest this one really stiff rounded flat brush.. “it’s my favorite”. That must be why.. trial and error must of taught me that the stiff brush gives good results! So, I am going to omit the other brushes. In fact.. after I post this I am going to go through all my Art & Sip brushes and discard the brushes that aren’t ideal. 💗
Ooh ooh ooh I can’t wait until Friday’s class 🤗 when I get to teach what I learned 🤗
Thanks for reading!! Have a great day!
And as always here’s something for your eyes 👀.
