 Today I switched from watercolour to acrylics. For me, with acrylics, the paper has to be just right and I find vellum mixed media paper ideal. It takes acrylic paint very smoothly.



 In other news, my waxy paintings are in Somerset Studio, Jan. 1 issue. This was one of my favourite series of paintings and I'm very happy to share them.
