I’m enjoying Spring and the flowers it brings! It doesn’t hurt to use up the Reds that I mixed either! I hope your able to stop and smell the flowers!

Vibrant! So: you mix a color and put it on. And then you wait for it to dry. And then you mix another color and put it on and wait for it to dry. And so on? is that your process? I keep asking incredibly stupid questions, but this is where I am at. When I do this with water color it kinda works and kinda doesn’t. But you are using acrylic, so it isn’t showing through. But here’s my big question: how do you know which colors go where without drawing some outline or something. This is perhaps my basic disconnect with art.
It is a good question! Some may put a color down and let it dry, in Acrylic it would be glazing, and I’ve seen others do it in watercolor starting with the lightest colors. Everyone has their own way. I use a wet on wet method. You can also search the word “Alla Prima.” I draw a rough line of the big shapes. I’m mostly concerned with placement, and composition. I do mix some of the colors I see on the palette so I’m not mixing it every time I load my brush. If you do too much mixing though you won’t see strokes. I put the colors on dark to light. Sometimes I will pick up more than one color at a time. Here is an old time lapse movie I did. At this point though I was putting on a base color first. I will be making new movies soon.
Thanks. I just need to experiment more. That video is great! I’ll watch it again.
It’s also worth noting that I’m using Golden Open Acrylics. Oil painting methods apply better to it than Acrylic painting methods. In fact, when it came onto the market, oil painters like it better than Acrylic users, because we tend to use our tried and true methods when we try new media. Still, Golden Open is unique unto itself.
The old time lapse is oil paint.
