Well I've decided to try and get back into traditional media art more. I used to work almost exlusively in acrylic paint but since getting my tablet..well...let's just say I have a secret lover in my life...that is apparantly not so secret
. Well I actually had a rough start getting back into painting, especially on illustration board. I forgot completely how the surface interacts with the paint and just how tricky it can be to balance the amount of water to have on the brush so you have just enough but not too much.
This is my second piece, the first is too big for the scanner and I can't get good photos of it.
Acrylic and colored pencil on illustration board
size: roughly 8"x10"
time: 6 hours or so.
Sidenote: this may or may not be placed in the art show at FC, I don't know yet how attached I am to it!
