Liz,

How big a canvas are you planning?

I do not work in acrylic so may not be much help. 

I'd love to paint one in watercolor, maybe using my crumpled paper technique.

I tend to use one of the copy/trace methods more often now. I still hand draw a few, I suppose it could be related to my vision issues, I just have a tendency to keep drawing bigger and bigger and run out of paper!  :doh:     :2funny:     So, if I want to get a good result without painting the Sistine Chapel while I'm at it.... I take the easier route!  ;D
Cheers, Val

Hi MAL, VAL,


I use acrylic only because it dries faster.  It's a toss up now because oil will lend better to blending the colors of the wood planks.  The painting process of my way of painting with toned ground, blocking in and painting in layers is the same for both acrylic and oil. It makes sense to me to use oil for an uncomplicated composition because it won't take too many days of waiting for the paint to dry in between.  Will this bridge painting be as uncomplicated as it looks?


Anyway I plan to do 11x14, my favorite size which I buy by the case.  I think I'll do the sketch of the bridge right on the canvas and draw/paint as I go. 8)  -Liz
 (The bridge progress will be a post on my blog later, and posted on PB- when I get going...)

VAL, I was just thinking that we have a PB buddy who wonders when his painting is 'finished' and there's me wondering when to get 'started'!  :2funny:

And then there are people who can't finish because half-way through it all looks such a mess... ;D

 :thankyou: PATRICIA, I appreciate your friendship and support! 


Just tonight I found out that I somehow had my Holiday Greetings for my art site STILL IN DRAFT!!!  I thought it went out.  I should have double checked!


Anyway, I’m caught up with today’s post if you and others want to read about the conclusion of my covered bridge painting- from beginning process to the end.

Wishing you all the BEST OF 2018!  GOD BLESS YOU ALL WITH GOOD HEALTH, SUCCESS IN ALL YOU DO, & GREAT ART!!!  :hug:  ~LIZ

You did a great job on this, Liz.  I should try it and send it back to my friends in Massachusetts.
