Study: Little Green Pin Cushion
4" x 6" Acrylic on watercolor paper
I'm back to working with house paints---interior latex satin, my favorite. Back when I was doing my pigeon studies in oil I started getting blisters on my hands---an allergic reaction to something in my paints or with the solvent. It has happened before but this time it was pretty bad. The sores have completely healed now but I haven't felt yet like trying to figure out what exactly I'm allergic to nor have I felt like wearing gloves. I do miss working in oil though. So while I get back into the swing of painting and contemplating how to return to oils, I'm practicing all the basics. Coming soon are a series of gray tonal studies with the house paints.
