FINDING MY ACRYLIC PAINT ART STYLE? | Translating an Art Style into a New Medium

  • Published on Aug 27, 2019
  • I've really enjoyed the blobbing and process of painting with Acrylics but I'm not happy with the way my art style is portrayed when I do. So I'm taking time today to practice painting faces in Acrylic Paint. Focusing in on what I don't like, why I don't like it, and making it resemble my usual art style better. Grab your sketchbooks, let's fill a spread!
    Illo Sketchbook:
    Americana Acrylic Paints:

    White Faber Castell Kneaded Eraser [named Beluga]

    I am drawing the human body, pushing out of my usual style of art and instead pushing towards grotesquely shaped but still nicely drawn poses of the body, drawing more on emotion of having a bad day today rather than my knowledge of drawing the human body from school. Its both cathartic but also almost actually looks nice but creepy, like seeing a baroque painting. Not that I'm anywhere that good, but that's what I'm going for.

    Something I think that would really help you would actually be working on a larger surface! It can seem really intimidating to jump onto a big canvas at first, but once you get over that initial fear, a lot of people find it really freeing to paint bigger. It gives you more space for expressive brush strokes and experimentation. Also I noticed you were worried about your paint drying up while you were working. I highly recomend a glass pallet if you're going to keep dabbling in painting (which I'm so excited that you are because i really look up to you and I'm a painting major so it's really cool to see your approach to it.). Glass pallets don't absorb all of the moisture of your paint like paper or wood would do and they're pretty easy to clean. The cheapest way to get a glass pallet is to just buy a picture frame. One more handy dandy tip is to keep a spray bottle full of water next to you while you paint. Every so often just spray your paint down with a little water to keep it from drying up and if you come to the end of a session but you have a lot of paint left over, don't scrap it!!! Scrape it up color by color (or mix it into a mystery color) and put it in a little plastic/glass container with a little water in the cup. Make sure it has a tight lid and it should keep for up to a week. It'll save you a lot of money. ;)

    With acrylic paint maybe you could try using the damp brush to blend from light to dark, I saw that you tend to blend with another color but I did definitely learn a lot from this video so thank you so much cause I was stressing out with mixing dark colors a little while ago, love your videos and I love how you played with colors for blush and rosy features. Not a critique just an appreciation comment ❤️ I was LOWKEY screaming like AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH DARK PAINT FIRST MY EMOTIONS
