awesome april (day 28) – anticipation

R & F Paintsticks

R & F Paintsticks

There’s nothing like new art materials to make me excited.  I just got some new paint sticks last week, and have been looking forward to this week – lots of studio time.  Tomorrow is the day!

I’ve been using these a lot with my encaustic work, but also love to draw with them in my oil and acrylic paintings.

"Today I Feel Refreshed and Excited"

“Today I Feel Refreshed and Excited”

 

I also use oil sticks for many of my drawings on paper.

I finally made some new cradled panels this weekend, too.  Thanks to my hubby for his help with these (or for letting me help him — he’s so much better at mitred corners than I am).

I made these underpaintings a few months ago, but now that I have the cradles on the back, they are ready for me to layer paint and color. Who knows how much of my original painting will even be visible when I’m done (probably not much).   I can’t wait!
