No matter how hard you try to be clean and tidy when you’re painting, some artist materials leave you peeling paint off your hands.
Being rather addicted to pouring art, fluid acrylics, I generally wear gloves to avoid getting too much pouring medium, paint and ink on my skin. It can be a wonderfully messy art medium, so rarely does it work out that you’re paint free.
There’s something therapeutic about peeling paint off your hands, though it can be a devil to get it all out of your nails.
Scanning Department Queue
I love seeing a queue in my ‘scanning department’. It’s proof, if you need any, that you’ve had a productive and satisfying painting session.
In this image, the left hand papers are hand painted ink and water colour textures. On the right hand side are acrylic pouring paintings and abstracts on wood panels.
These all passed my strict quality control standards and most have made their way into textures. Some have been reserved for the exclusive collections I create for the Australian ‘Artists Down Under Magazine’.
