Hey guys! Here are a couple shots of my studio space and go-to art supplies.
My favorite time of the day is when I come in here after the kids are off to school, I put on one of my favorite pod casts and enter the creative zone.
I often start a piece by staining the canvas with a pour of watered down acrylic paint and then start building colors intuitively from there.
Some of my go to art supplies are in the pictures above:
-Golden Heavy Body Acrylics (their pigment ratio is really good and give such nice bright colors)
-Glazing Liquid - to extend colour a, make them move around more smoothly and extend drying time to get more color mixing on the canvas
-acrylic paint pens for small details or signing my name
-super creamy and bright Senellier oil pastels
-my favorite large flat brush as well as other tools for moving paint around including a palette knife and the flat rubber tool shown above
-can’t forget the paper towels! I find taking paint back off to reveal colors underneath just as important as adding new colors on.
-and a shot of the canvas drop cloth that protects the floor. Because the floor of an art studio can be so beautiful and interesting
Have a lovely day!
“The map is not the territory” Alfred Habdank Skarbek Korzybski.
I rediscovered this dictum in an old journal and decided it was a good leaping off point for this show. This from a series of small studies of macro images of garden and native Colorado flora - territory within territory. 🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨
