Painting 101

Back to the basics.....with real paint! It's been several years since I painted traditionally. Shame on me! So today I decided to go to an art store to buy a few tubes of paint. Prices on art supplies really went up! More reason to paint digitally....haha :P

This was painted at night from my deck. It was quite a feat considering getting back into it after a long time, but nothing is more rewarding than true painting. And yes...my car magically transformed into an Toyota Echo at midnight, really! This was painted with acrylic on a 4x6 panel. I'll be doing more of these life studies frequently. Enjoy!
