Acrylic on Drafting Film
I love this painting and did I say that I love this painting….cause I really want you to know that I love this painting, hee hee…. This took me about two weeks and many hours. Suffice it to say unless my speed picks up, I don’t believe anyone could afford an acrylic pet portrait from me. Although it was time-consuming, it really was’nt difficult, but I think if the coat was fluffy it would’ve been much harder. I’m a slow painter and the only downfall I have with acrylic painting is that the paint dries too fast in the palette. I found a stay wet palette for decorative painting for a big total of $6.00 and that’s much cheaper than an “artists” stay wet palette. It has 16 wells, a water cup (with a lid) in the center. I used that in combination with Liquitex palette wetting spray and my paint lasted the whole 2 weeks! The downside to my palette is that the wells are not very deep, but that’s it. Oh, and the drafting film was fun to paint on too:)
Be Well and Happy!
