Henry • WORK-IN-PROGRESS
Anyway, Kim has already posted her painting here on her blog. And be sure to check out her website, too. I love her lively use of color (of course, because I’m a color nut, like so many of you out there.)
Today I finished the acrylic underpainting, and tomorrow I will continue in oils. Remember, it’s perfectly fine to paint oils over acrylics, but not the other way around. Unless you’re the adventurous type who just wants to see what happens. Far be it from me to prevent experimentation! What could happen? I mean, I don’t think the universe would implode or anything if someone tried to paint with acrylics over oils; it just wouldn’t turn out like they expected, and it’s not generally recommended.
Hey, I just googled what happens if you paint with acrylics over oils? and got a lot of interesting information. If you’re like me, you might want to set a timer before you go wandering off, or you might just spend more time than you intended to in internet-land when there are other things you really need to be doing.
Here are my work-in-progress photos for Henry so far (above is my initial sketch, in Prussian blue):
Check back tomorrow for more progress ...
