I cropped the painting and that moved the fence into the center, etc., which didn't quite work as a great new composition. It still looks OK considering. And what else was I considering? We went to one of the main craft stores to get some brush cleaner and we found a rack of "Painting for Dummies" for $5 a kit. That seemed fun, put a little kit in your purse or art bag and go. I picked the "Acrylics for Dummies" so I could paint and it would dry. The kit included a set of six tiny bottles of paint, two tiny brushes, 3 cardboard surfaces, 5 x 7 inches, and instruction for one floral painting. Not too bad, huh?
The paints, however, were very watery. The coverage was not great and at the end of the three hour class, it was a little sticky. Now, three days later, it finally feels pretty dry. :) You can still see the canvas in places. Great for learning and having interchange with other artists. That is always good to get the creative juices flowing. Thank you Sue!
