Last summer I decided to try acrylic painting. It is very different from watercolours.....backwards I might say.....but I guess some would say that watercolours is backwards. In watercolour you paint from light to dark, because the watercolour paints are somewhat transparent, so you can't cover up a darker colour with a lighter colour. But what an amazing and fun thing....in acrylic painting YOU CAN DO THAT! And what freedom that gives. Wow. I took 2 classes in Chatsworth with Peter John Reid and this past winter, I did a Zoom class with Marianne Broome from Schomberg.
