Help with Acrylic Painting

Regular readers will know that I struggle with acrylics at times, although I have had better results lately.

I receive the newsletter from CreativeSpotlite.com and they have a new article by Lesly Finn. It is very informative and has some good tips and a demo about using acrylics. Lesly is the artist that started the ArtBlogs4U which is a great resource to find artists that blog on a regular basis. Maybe I will get to New Zealand someday to get to know Lesly in real life.

The acrylic article was very interesting. I will pass it on to my students. Thanks.

I really appreciate your sharing this article. I knew exactly who needed the info "now!"

Jo Castillo said...

bag blog, my pleasure. I don't know if you looked at Lesly's art. The demo is very "real" but her true love is abstract and some are so beautiful with a combo of real and abstract. I'm not usually into abstract but I enjoy hers.

nancy, some good stuff in the article. Lesly is a generous artist. :)

Thank you, Jo, for this link. My short foray into the world of acrylics was painful. I'll read this carefully and give it another go.

Susan, thanks back. I have been trying to learn acrylics so I can use them when we travel. So much less to carry and you can paint and it will dry for travel. I keep trying!
