Acrylic Paint, Beginner, Global, How To, Impasto, Paint, Student -

While lying in bed last week unable to move about due to a bad back strain, painting was a no go. However that didn’t stop the thought process one bit. In fact it gave me the needed time to do what every artists has on their mind at some point. WHAT NEXT? With exhibitions around the corner and this blog to write I had time to put my thinking cap on. Impasto. What to do? What to do it with? As in my previous blog painting is not all about painting what you see. It’s about imagination as well.  Impasto...

Acrylic Paint, Liquitex, Marker, Markers, Natasha Fitzpatrick, Paint, Paint Markers, Review -

So I’m onto my final piece of art with these pens and as I said in the beginning the feel I got from them straight away was a street art or  mural vibe. So this will be my focus on this piece and I’m really looking forward to having a play & creating something funky. The other cool thing about these pens is that they’re also compatible with other Liquitex products so you can combine them with a spray paint or varnish. Anywhoo back to the art. So I begin to sketch out my design. I’m wanting to create a...

Liquitex, Markers, Natasha Fitzpatrick, Paint, Paint Markers -

So getting started on creating art, this is all new to me as I’ve never tried paint markers before so this is a big experiment.

Landscapes, abstract - the possibilities are endless. So kicking off I decide to create something with bold colour, as these pens pop out in vibrancy. I sketch out a design in pencil...

How To, Jan Thomson, Limited Palette, Maimeri, Paint, Water Colour Paint -

Continuing on from my two colour palette … Next, using three Maimeri colours you can create an exciting colour range to work with. All you need is one yellow, one red and one blue. The first example is a warm palette, using Terra de Sienna, Blu Oltre Marie Chiaro and Rosso Pyrrolo – together these form a soft green, a fiery orange and a greyish purple. They also mix to make a beautiful warm grey and a luscious purple /black. The second trio is a cool one – Blu de Fainza, Gilallo Primario and Rosso Magenta – this is pretty...

Blue, Canson, Jan Thomson, Maimeri, Paint, Water Colour Paint -

Well, that’s not quite true, but if I had to choose just two pigments to take to my desert island they would be Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna. With these two I can make warm and cool greys, soft underpaintings and juicy darks as well as the clear bright clear colours that they are when used solo. For this little sketch I used Maimeri Blu Oltremare Chiaro and Terra Di Siena Bruciata (don’t they sound good in Italian?). These two colours are my essentials in any brand, so it’s good to compare Maimeri with the others I’m more familiar with....
