Cheap vs expensive acrylic paint: why cheap will cost you in the long run
I decided to buy a cheap brand of acrylic paint on a recent trip to the art supply store.
The quantity was plenty, and the colours looks great; but, when I got the tubes home I noticed that they did not mix well with my usual premium acrylic paints to create a style that I liked. One of the positive sides to this mishap, was that the paints had a nice body to them; and I was able to create some texture in this piece (seen above).
I have heard many times that in order to be good at something (like, really really good), you have to do whatever the thing is every single day. Following that stream of thought, it would make sense that some days as a painter, one just needs to paint for the sake of painting. The quality of the paint should not really matter or serve as a roadblock to achieving the goal of painting everyday.
Above we see an abstract landscape painting. I intended it to be a very abstract and colourful scene with mountains and a golden sun. I have heard from many admirers of my art that as the beholder’s they can decide on what they see. The colours are decided, but ultimately the image that is viewed is entirely up to you, and how you feel at that moment.
I enjoy creating feelings 🙂
