I started to explore painting about 10 years ago. In the beginning it was just oil on plate. Now days, Its mainly acrylic painting with oil as a last stroke. But mostly just acrylic.
I will just show ,and put together some of my projects here. And try to explain the pros and cons.
The gallery can also be seen on my homepage.
Step 1: My Workplace .!
I tried the Art Easel earlier, with mixed results . It wasnt right for me. (We call it staffeli in Norway) So I ended up on the floor in my livingroom.
Just cover the floor with thick plastic membrane, and start messing! For getting the paint on the canvas/plate , I use my hands, og big cheap brushes. Dont need expensive brushes here..!
The projector screen I used for projecting images to a canvas.Then the Easel was helpful.
For materials, I use:
Plaster for wall plates
Sand in different grades.
Bits of metal
Whatever that stics to the canvas.
