New Paint and a bit of a change



















I've bought some interactive acrylics, thinking they will be better for plein-air painting. ( to go along with my brand new soltek easel!)  This is not a plein air painting, however but I wanted to get a feel for these paints which stay wet longer and can revitalize with a bit of spray when they start to dry. I'm not sure I need them for this type of painting with the texture underneath. A couple of Red Robins for a change of pace and to welcome ( finally) Spring!























acrylic 9x12
Again using the interactives and no palette knife. Hmmmmm.... struggled a lot with this painting...maybe too may new variables...small canvas, new paint, new subject and no trusty palette knife. Fun to play and experiment though.
