Meanwhile I'm playing with small canvases until after my hand surgery next week. I bought Lukas water mixable paints to try out and they seem to be a bit smoother to paint with than the Winsor & Newton ones. I bought a set so I don't have as many colors, but it will be convenient for plein air painting since it came with a carry box.
I am working on a self portrait now that was inspired by an advertisement for a contest. I am not planning on submitting it, but took on the challenge and I'm trying to make it in Van Gogh style, inspired by his portraits. I'll post it when it's done. It was fun to start on this morning.
