I recently got back in touch with an art teacher acquaintance of mine, and my gasp of anatomy is benefitting immensely. I hope to improve a lot over the summer since I start my MA in English in August and won't have a lot of time to draw.
Things I'm considering. The biggest of all, is that I'm considering switching from acrylics to watercolour. As most of you know, all my paintings are done with watered down acrylic paint. However, I think I may have come to the limits of what this painting style can do for me. Watercolour has a natural life to its colour, which is something acrylic lacks. I go back and forth between thinking that it's my lack of skill that leaves my colours looking awful and thinking it's my materials' fault. I may be trying some watercolours soon to see if I can clear this up for myself.
Sorry for the lack of art and journals. There's nothing much going on in my life right now. I draw, write and read every day, and that's about it. I should have more exciting news by the end of May, I think.
