the last acrylic I do for a while.
I am longing to get back to my transparent watercolor.
I like the direct painting of acrylic and it serves my purpose from time to time but I am a watercolor artist at heart and I will be returning to that set of brushes soon ... I plan to create this window image (shown here as today's last acrylic painting) in watercolor and post it later this week.
I think it does my brain good to work with other art materials from time to time .... forces me to think in other ways and not create by memory. Many times, I will paint something from memory or "like I've done it before."
Teaching usually knocks me out of that comfort zone rather quickly because I am forced in a gentle way to view things through my student's eyes. Working in a new or different art medium, or just reverting back to the basics like pencil or crayon (don't laugh) can relax your thinking and open up the clogs.
Try it ... you'll like it!
