There was a time, not so long ago when my medium of choice was acrylic on canvas. I did many big colourful paintings, had many exhibitions with them and thought for a while I'd never want to use anything else.
We found an old director's chair that somebody had put out with the rubbish and as the seat and the backrest were made out of canvas I thought it would be the perfect base to play with some acrylics again and give it a new lease of life. I painted a design on it this morning but in a sudden fit of pique (or madness?!) took a brushload of lime green paint and covered up all the meticulous painting I'd done earlier. After having watercoloured my way through the last year I'm finding the acrylic too sticky and frustratingly slow coming off the brush. Who'd have thought I used to love its butteryness...fickle...moi?
The picture above is a background of a knifeful of acrylic paint that was left over on my pallet, and drawn over with a brown ink line. As for the chair, the paint is drying right now so I'll photograph it tomorrow and show it here.
