Learn to paint in Acrylic paints - Step by Step
We have just spent 3 months in temporary digs as we sold our house and have just moved into our new home a bungalow. While in digs I did loads of reading, bought 3 crossword books and I also bought myself a colouring book to keep me occupied as we had no wifi and only free TV viewing.

At the moment I am only painting with water colours I can do these sitting down, for acrylics I like to stand and at the moment I am not allowed to stand for long.

I can also get more layers than I could on…Continue
