A video demo of a nude figure painting I created using both acrylic and oil paint on Crescent #110 cold press illustration board that I covered with three coats of slightly watered down gesso.
Even though creating art is my job, I always try to find time to try out new techniques or revive ones I hadn’t used in many years. We are always growing and learning as artists. It’s important that we take time to remind ourselves just how much fun painting can be.
