So here goes … here are ten ways to loosen up your painting style:
On to today’s other order of business … in my last blog post, Vanessa asked “Which is your current favourite art supply?” Right now, I’m having fun painting on paper, rather than on canvas. (Come to think of it, painting on paper is another way to loosen up. It feels less precious than a canvas … more expendable.) I’ve been experimenting painting on different papers, including canvas sheets. watercolour paper, Bristol, mixed media paper and acrylic paper. My favourite at the moment is acrylic paper. I'm using Strathmore Acrylic paper, linen finish - acid free, heavy weight, 246 lb. What paper do you like to use acrylic paint on? I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.
