Eating and Drinking Series...#5 "Listening and Talking"
Top: 5 x 7 acrylic
Bottom: 5 x 7 watercolor
Yesterday I received some Holbein acrylics so I thought that was a sign that I better try one of these "Eating and Drinking" paintings in this new medium (new for me). The top one is yesterday's attempt. The bottom one is tonight's attempt in my old faithful watercolor medium. (Holbein, or course!)
They say we are supposed to grow as an artist and to try new things. This is what I am doing with this series. It has been fun but I sure need a lot more work on painting people. Maybe I should do one of these little 5 x 7 paintings in a larger format. That might make it a bit easier. I would rather paint with bigger brushes.
