Acrylic Painting

Hi, I just wanted to write a little about things I have learned. I needed some new paints and went to an art store at Birmingham. Forstalls Art Center. The nice gentleman there suggested that I try Golden Heavy Body Acrylics. I bought about 6 tubes which are quite expensive. What I learned is that they are worth it. They have high pigment and they dry slower allowing more time to work before they dry out. I am loving them. They are like thick butter consistency. So far so good. Of course I still use a fine atomizer to keep them moist.

Day Off

Day Off is an acrylic painting
on 10x20 panel board.

The Carol

Painting this boat reminded me of an
old shrimp boat my dad used to own.
We, my dad, brother, sisters and I set
out for a nice day of shrimping. A tremendous
storm came up and almost capsized our
53 ft shrimper. I have never been so scared
in my life. Acrylic on 10x20 panel board.
