Anonymous said: hi there-- your work is fantastic! I normally work with acrylics, but really admire your work in oil. I was wondering how often you use acrylics and about your opinion as to whether or not adding retarder makes for a similar effect to oil paints? I understand that there are some obvious differences, but right now my problem with acrylic paint is that some of my value changes are too sharp because of how quickly the paint dries. Thanks

Yeah, acrylics are problematic in the difference between “live value” and “dead value” after they dry (my terms, not industry terms). I’ve developed a method that allows you to paint directly into gouache with acrylics so that it more closely resembles wet-into-wet oil painting in that your color mixes on your piece, not on your palette. Step 1: Full pencil value drawing. Step 2: Use a light midtone acrylic (I like unbleached titanium white, Liquitex heavy body, diluted with water) to both fix the drawing, and define a midtone value in one step. I apply gouache or watercolor liberally  in areas that I want to be warm or cool (generally only two colors that are complimentary, i.e. orange and blue). Step 3: Once the gouache is dry, I paint the same midtone acrylic back into the gouache which turns the color either warm or cool, dependent upon the temperature of the gouache. The acyrlics still dry darker, but they are changing in value and hue in front of you, not off to the side. Step 4: Redefine darks.

Nothing supplants oils, but this is a process I’ve developed over the years that gives me some favorable results. Hoping this helps!

The Creative Mistress

Making art isn’t a monologue, it’s a dialogue between your materials and your intent. Really, it’s more of a scream in your face yelling match, that gets a little too honest sometimes.

We no longer access information; we are accessed. Videos, images, movies, games, music and every other pervasive call to our senses has numbed us to our own considerations. Consideration, after all, requires time. As we give away more of the precious stuff to live virtually and vicariously through the lives of others, we lose sight of our intent. It is from this intent, that we derive content. Mined from our personal experiences, and coupled with those things that permeate our time, it becomes a commentary on the here and now.
