Moving along on the acrylic abstract thing. I've discovered lots of new techniques with the paint. It's all about experimenting endlessly. I bought three books on techniques and there's always the internet where you can see demonstrations. I'm trying things out on small panels but the paintings are large- 24x 30 or so. This I love.
Abstract is more about the act of making. Takes me back to my batik dyeing, stitching and quilting days. No stress just play. But I'm also continuing to work in oil because there's a lot of wait time while the gel mediums dry. (a day sometimes.) Got another big flower thing going- so much fun.
