My Favourite Media
Updated: Jan 23, 2022
I work In watercolour, acrylics and the occasional oil and am often asked which is my favourite. That is a hard one to answer because I like all three for different reasons
Acrylics are great because you can paint over anything you don’t like and they are quick to dry. I find them the easiest to work with.
i don’t have the patience for oils and get banished to the garage when I use them because of the smell. However, I love the end result and have produced some of my best work in oil.
I think, if forced to pick, that watercolour is my number one. I first learnt with watercolour and, although it’s the hardest to work with I love the unpredictable nature of when the paint hits the page.
Recently I have been exploring honey-based paints and a looser style and the results are now on line.
