Today's painting was done with Acylics and I thought I would tell you about the paints I use. They are Chroma Atelier Interactive Acrylics. These paints are made in Australia and I get them from Jerry's Artarama. These paints are different than the ordinary acrylics, these acrylics don't dry too quickly and you are able to blend as if you were using oils. I really love them and many of my friends don't even realize they are not oil. Hope you enjoy this little bit of information.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
