Get Your Paint On, Week Two

Week 2, Get Your Paint On
24" x 12" Acrylic on Canvas.

I kept Week Two's painting simple because I only had one day to complete it due to my super-busy schedule. I still need to put a few coats of clear medium on it, and that's just going to be on my to-do list for a hot minute. Painting this brought me back to my college days (remember my inspiration post?) and I think I started missing how I used to paint back then. I feel like I used to experiment more with texture and layers (spraying water on wet acrylic, scrubbing the paintbrush on the canvas, etc.) and perhaps it was because I was trying to figure out my artistic voice.


This week is just as busy as last, and I'm worried I won't do as well as I should in this class. But! I shouldn't spend too much time worrying and more time just making art. I have some props to create for a play that's opening next week, as well as some tattoo designs to create, so my plate's pretty full.

Here's to being an artist! I wouldn't change it for the world!
