I wanted to do some trial painting in acrylics tonight on some cardboard sheets Liz gave me for that purpose.  I choose the Acrylic Sunset class.


Had two HUGE mistakes.
   1. The masking tape I used stuck to the cardboard and lifted the surface off at the horizon line. (Look and you can see the different shade of blue there.)

   2. I was experimenting to see if some old paint a friend gave me was any good.  I thought it was all acrylic paint.  W-R-O-N-G - the white paint was oil-based.  Yikes, the more water I added the more it resisted it.  What a mess.

But, I got part way through before I realized what was wrong, so I did not complete the painting.

This morning, the dried painting looked kind of good.  I actually like it except for the discolored spot where the tape ripped the top layer of cardboard off.

I impressed with the texture on the mountains.   Your thoughts?

Good textures Mea. Isn't it funny how you can go to bed feeling so discouraged about a painting and wake up seeing something quite nice?

Thanks, Nolan and EmmaLee. 

Too bad the texture of the cardboard shows through.  Might have been a keeper.

You gave it a good go Mea and learned a few things. So I'd say you had a great success.  O0

I'm guessing then that to correct the corrugation showing through you must use thicker paint(?).
Cheers, Val

I tried acrylic paint for the first time. I haven't painted in a while because my kids have been out of school for the summer. It isn't easy to paint while you have little ones running around. I decided to try a quick, simple seascape in acrylics. Yeah right, this wasn't quick or simple for me. I struggled with blending. I guess because I'm used to oils I expect my paintings to be smoothly blended and I couldn't make that happen with these paints. This ended up being more of a finger painting than anything. I made a mess all over myself.  ;D
I used the Liquitex basics...  Anyhow, let me know what you think.

I may have made my clouds too dark for a sunrise.

your painting looks awesome EmmaLee :clap: :clap: :clap:

It took me quite a while to learn to blend with the acrylic paints as well - the more you paint with them, them easier it becomes. Your best friend is a spray bottle that has a very fine and even mist. This will allow you blend for as long as needed. O0

EmmaLee your painting is beautiful. I always had a hard time with acrylics. When I found Oils it was like the sky opened up and the sun shined down on me! lol.. I use Fluid acrylics now when I do use them... But I really stay with my oils.
 Great work..
