Waste Not Want Not

18 Jul

waste not 3

I was doing some teaching today and there was some acrylic paint leftover, good stuff, Liquitex. Waste not, want not, I thought and used it up on a canvas board. I rubbed a layer of black on first, in a rotating motion with a large stippling brush and when that was dry, a layer of diluted green/blue and finally, working from the bottom right with a blunt hoghair brush and some maroon. It’s completely random but I need to loosen up my techniques and work more intuitively. It’s also good for my students to get into the habit of using up all their materials and trying out different things.
