[365] in May

Updated: Jun 1

My daily painting adventure has been so fun.

The end of April brought me to Day 120.

The month of May will take me through Day 121 to 151.


AND... my plan for this month is to make daily 4" x 6" Acrylic Paintings using pieces of 400 Series Strathmore Acrylic Painting Paper that has been kicking around the studio for a long time.


I've fallen in love with water based mediums like watercolor, inks, and gouache. But I want to revitalize my relationship with acrylics. I think part of the distance comes from not using it as often anymore. I'm trying to rethink the ways that I use Acrylics, too. Applying my application and mixing habits from my ink and watercolor painting. I think I've pressured myself to use them a certain way, mix colors a certain way, use a certain palette, and from the four months of working with a set acrylic ink palette, I'm now realizing... I can literally do the same thing with the acrylics. So I mixed up colors in little plastic jars and have them at the ready.


I hope I can feel more comfortable with my use of color and my application techniques. I want to be able to sit down and feel at ease vs feeling intimidated.
