I finished putting gesso on a few canvases then I took one while it was still wet and practiced painting with acrylics and the blade set I got. My technique still needs some work to match up with how long I have to work with the paint before it starts to dry and become unmanageable, but it worked for just practice.
Even though I didn’t participate in the bonfire, I was close enough to get some good pictures as reference for a painting I want to try using watercolors. I thought about taking one of my folding screen-style sketchbooks and doing a whole panorama, but the paper’s not right for watercolors. I could always try colored pencils and see what happens.
Unrelated, but I wish these ball machines had a faster setting.
