|11"x14" acrylic on slate|
I like painting sweet things that contrast with the rough stone
The grey background is fabulous and really makes me think about values
I love the texture and if I keep the layers thin and rub them in, it gives a nice effect
Using a variety of shades within a shape helps give it volume
It is much easier than painting with oils on a canvas or panel.
Also, and this applies to my painting in general, I love painting kids!
