Thank you so mush for your lovely comments Patricia, Doina and Val.  :hug: I like the medium but so far it stresses me because it dries so fast, and somehow I have paint all over me, good thing I have put old pajamas to paint. :D

Nice painting Danielle! We do not notice your struggling with the acryl paint at all.
I have bought the lesson also but now I need find some time to paint it.

Warm greetings from the Netherlands

thank you DayJill for your kind words, I just get so messy when doing acrylic, I keep having to clean my pallet multiple times during a painting and in the process I paint myself  ;D

Good job, Danielle! Have you tried mixing in some retarder or other medium that extends the drying time? I liked acrylics, but switched to oils so I can learn without being too focused on the drying time. Once I have a good foundation, I plan on getting back into them..

Save those old pajamas Danielle.....When you're done with them they can be displayed up on a board and auctioned off.   :heeha: You can't get more original than that!  :heeha:      :2funny:

Thank you Steve for the information,   I know that Nolan sprays water on the pallet and on the canvas, so this is what I am trying to do at the moment, and Dennis uses a medium.  I might try to use some medium soon,  thank you for the info.

Always humorous Val, you make me laugh.   
 
Thank you

Reflections are very well done Danielle. Ive always only worked with acrylics ...in my own fashion  :)... and am now dappling in watercolour and am encouraged that you once felt stressed, exactly how I feel, so shall push on and hope to produce something  Wow one day  as well.  :)
