Can any of the artists who have popped into this thread recommend a book or video using acrylics. Bob Ross used a wet on wet oil technique, but I am
a leftie and impatient, so oils are hard for me to use...
I just go to Wal Mart.
My first paint set in 20+ years was a cheap acrylic set in a wooden box but with it I created this:
And I still have most of the paints!
You do have to work a bit faster with acrylics for sure. Get a little spray bottle to keep the paints moist,or you can buy a pallet that keeps the
paints moist with a sponge in the bottom, but I just hope the paints don't dry before I finish something and sometimes it helps to go directly from
the tubes with the brushes unless you are using a fan brush or something bigger.
I found this youtube video for beginners with acrylics:
Hope that helps!
I just use pallet paper for a pallet. It just like a notebook only it is coated on the front side of each paper to keep the paints from leaking
through the pages.Almost like wax paper.

Not only Boss Ross inspired...but just WOW....The coffee beans! This is the first I have heard of ASMR, but I experience it a lot and didn't even
My mom used to tap the top of my head with her finger nails and it gave me almost the same feeling as the noises. I never realized that it was
something like that!
Felt from the head and down both arms...checking that thread!
I loved bob Ross, he was such a gentle and genuine person. Hard to imagine him as a sniper.
Anyway, I couldn't find full episodes of the Joy of Painting on YouTube. After a little digging I found a site in China that hosts the program (it's
still English). Kinda slow during peak China time, but thought I'd share.
