with my second ultramarine. It's been really good painting the model semi assembled, felt I was able to give more attention to the nooks and crannies. I've been more confident with the agrax earthshade this time round too. As in, I've used some 😁 still plenty to do but going to move on to the other parts now. As ever, pointers welcome!

🖌 Be delicate in painting details. Before starting to paint an object, take your time to observe it.
We have a painting tip for you! Pros usually follow a certain order when painting a room. They paint the trim first, then the ceiling, then the walls. That’s because it’s easier (and faster) to tape off the trim than to tape off the walls.

No way was the original character being stripped from this home! Before starting demo of the lathe and plaster all of the interior trim was removed and tagged so that it can be stripped sanded and reinstalled after the new drywall is put up. -

I recently learned some pro tips to acrylic painting. Apparently I've been doing things all wrong when it comes to prepping the canvas. I learned that, even though you may have a clean canvas, you still should always apply gesso first. (Unless it's a stiff backed canvas mounted to cardboard.) This provides a smoother working surface and keeps the canvas from soaking up the moisture from your paint allowing for more even stokes and application.
Another tip: you should "ground" your canvas. Grounding is when you apply a slight tint ( either brown or blue typically) to the canvas with some of your paint. The best way to do this is to apply it right after you get the base layer of gesso on, and while the gesso is still WET. Not after its dried! This will help you have a smooth even base.
So- WHY the ground layer??? Have you ever gone outside in the snow and came back inside and found that colors and the light inside seems so much darker? That's due to "snow blindness." Artists can get the same thing when looking at a large white section on a canvas while painting. It can mess up your ability to get proper color and light work, so if you have a slightly tinted base, it helps to allow better color and lighting and is easier on the eyes. Not to mention, it also provides either a warm tone or cool tone under your paint, which also can help make colors pop.
This painting I'm starting now, it's going to be a Christmas surpirse, and I'm starting with the right steps at the beginning - hoping it'll help my process, and maybe yours too! Happy Sunday!

~ TIP OF THE WEEK ~
Now you may think I'm going to tell you to wrap your bushes in cling film and put them in the fridge to prevent them drying out between coats but you thought WRONG! My tip of the week is to LABEL your ziplock bag in the fridge with "DO NOT throw out" so your husband doesn't pick up the bag and throw your brushes away! The first is also a great tip 👍🏼😉
