Top coat....

Hi folks, I am nearly to put the top coat on...what I used on my other acrylic paintings was Liquitex Medium Varnish which dries very glossy. If I use a matte medium instead, will it dull my colours?…Continue

Karen Ilari replied to Marion's discussion Untamed River - palette knife and 2" brush
"You are welcome Marion! And a 1" brush isn't that small for a painting this size! It may have more to do with setting a stroke, adjusting the edge if needed, and then leaving it be. You may be "petting the canvas" which…"

"Thanks Karen, I feel like you've just thrown me a life preserver.  And I confess, I had gone down to a 1" brush....I am going to go back to the bigger brush and stick with it only -yet another learning challenge, I mean creative…"

Profile Information

How long have you been painting? Doing any kind of art?
I have only been painting since 2013. Took a class and one of the first things the teacher said, was : anyone can learn to paint, you just have to practice. Wow! Magic words. Always thought talent was just born, not created and learned. Sewing, quilting and fabric art have been part of my life for as long as I can remember.
What other mediums have you used?
Mixed media, fabric. Tried watercolour, but not for me.
Are their specific things you would like to learn?
Everything, lol. Fascinated by colour, how to use, theory, etc. Brush strokes, palette knife techniques.
Where did you learn about this website?
You tube....typed in how to paint....
