After a stint playing with oils, boy it’s hard going back to acrylics. Every brush stroke is a fight, even if I try every combination of flow improvers and mediums under the sun

A larger-scale study of an earlier gouache work. This time a mix of airbrushed high flow acrylics and a more painterly application of Turner japanesque acryl gouache

@koosli it’s pretty good. Wish I had more hours in the day to work on things

@TQ thank you. I was very concerned it would feel exploitative but I think it conveyed something real about what I was feeling

This is a small piece in gouache that was inspired, for want of a better word, by the bushfires.

Hey folks, I’m still searching for a medium so I’m giving oils a go. Quite a learning curve, if just because the paint gets everywhere

@koosli I primed with a laminate primer, laid down the black with a rattle can, everything else with acrylics shot through an Iwata airbrush

Gouache practice. This is the kind of subject matter that lends itself to a detailed under drawing but I really can’t yet control my impatience to get to the painting stage. Got to work on that
