That's looking great! The other sketch/progress looks wonderful too, can't wait to see it complete :)
Oh man that looks fantastic!
Okay, foolish question. Asking it feels foolish, you'd think I'd have figured this out by now - is the well palette your secret to keeping your acrylic paint at the 'wash' consistency you use to work for longer than five freaking minutes? This one, I know, is oil; but you spend just as much time 'noodling' over the acrylics. Maybe you're just so awesome that you re-mix every ten minutes, like a ninja. :)
Ramie- No such thing as a foolish question. I ask other artists things all the time as well. Not to mention I often find myself staring at a piece feeling lost and unsure how to proceed. So far this is only acrylic on canvas. I may get into oils at some point maybe not. I tend to add a lot of water to my paints and paint in a very water color like manner. Yes, this palette helps. If I need to mix a large amount of a color I use small bowls and put tin foil over them when not in use. Working this way the pigment tends to separate and settle at the bottom. So it usually helps to stir them with your brush and testing the color on scrap paper before each application. Hope that answered your question.
do you use a retarder at all? I wonder if it changes the consistency of the acrylics much.haha, I love that you answer questions. I think you would make a good teacher, especially when it comes to using acrylic washes.
