I’ve been having such a good time in my newish studio lately. I’ve been experimenting, trying new paints and materials, and generally trying to STAY OUT OF MY OWN WAY. 

That’s the trick, no? To stay out of our own ways so that intuitive, free, FUN painting sessions can unfold in ways that aren’t controlled.

 

 

Blick Art Materials (my long-time source for buying allll of my  art supplies) sent me a few heavy-bodied paints to try out (Thank you, Blick!), including some cadmium-free colors (YAY!). I almost always use Golden fluid acrylics, so it was super fun to try something new.

And guess what? I am loving them!!  Why have I waited to use them for so long?

They’re super creamy, opaque, and finger smooshy-worthy. AND I’ve been using them for my Art Dates, too.

 

Tell me what art supplies you’re loving lately. I’d love to know.

In addition to the heavy-bodied paints, I’m loving Posca Paint Markers, which are also new-to-me and I’m LOVING them as well (especially the white).

Big love!

Nine months in our new home: a little home tour for you.
