painting 120

So a disclaimer here — this painting was strictly for me to practice some techniques.  It’s not particularly pretty, but I’m excited to share the results of my resin color swipes with you.

Yellow resin painting

It’s more transparent colors in resin this week.  This yellow resin painting comes from using orange, yellow and antique gold together over a white base.

resin painting with a juicer

resin painting with a juicer

You should not expect anything exciting from this week’s painting.  I wanted to try a ‘juicer’ to apply the resin, so I didn’t make anything really complicated. Uh juicer?  I thought water wasn’t good for resin.  It’s not, but I found this dandy plastic juicer at the dollar store and thought I would give it… Read more »

resin painting 112

I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but this isn’t exactly the picture I had in my head about how this painting would turn out.  I think that’s one of our problems as artists in why we can’t (or at least I can’t) appreciate our own work sometimes.  More on this in a minute.
