  • Re: Acrylics over watercolor?

Whereas, with acrylics (and oils) you put your darks down first and add lighter and lighter colors finishing it off with white as your...

I am not a visual artist but rather an environmental science/experiential outdoor educator and I adore wildlife ecology, the natural world, and impressionistic/naive style art. I recently came across a lovely book of...

  • Acrylic over Watercolor

    I want to explore using acrylic on my watercolor paintings. Anyone out there doing this already? If so, what paper are you using? I just bought the fairly new Strathmore Mixed Media paper to try.

  • Re: colored pencil

    OK, I am getting ready to attack my cat (portrait that is -- I don't have a cat). This is a study. I just couldn't make myself pick up the paintbrush and start in on my 300 lb. 1/4 sheet of Arches, so I'm am doing a fall-back study first. Of course it will probably come out really neat because...

  • Re: colored pencil

    I originally put this question under mixed media, but this may be a more appropriate spot to post it. I have already gotten some good information on painting fur from several different people and owe a special thanks to Robin; however, I think I have pinpointed my real question.
