I worked on a painting today. It is still early, so I don't know if it something that I can put in the Kingstad show..it remains to be seen. Once again, as a reminder, I consulted my photocopied MacPherson tips for making a good painting. It seems a very good list to me! Whenever I really pay attention to these simple suggestions I do manage to make a good painting. This is from his first book, Fill your oil paintings with Light and Color. Notice how he gets all this valuable information reduced to one page! I am painting in acrylics today, but his recommendations from the oil painting book are definitely applicable to acrylic too.
