These works are artist acrylic paints. For now acrylics are my mainstay my medium of choice for many reasons.
They are readily available. For myself and my students I ask for artist grade paints. There are several companies that I prefer for price and quality. Golden of course for their quality and variety and Nova Color Paints for their quality and price. Others are fine but for now I like these.
Acrylics are so versatile. They can be used out of the tube or jar, diluted, or thickened with mediums. I like the bright colors and use them that way or mix colors for new and grayed down colors. I like to use white gesso and black gesso,for mixing—-again very versatile.
I like to be able to work on paper and either frame of mount them for a no glass look. Check back to this page for more examples.
