Universe // Art Journal // June 21, 2015

 

This is my first attempt at using acrylic paint. I am mesmerized by the fact that it dries so quickly AND when it dries it is so smooth to touch! I had never had acrylics when I was a kid. I only ever used watercolours and gouache, so this is a new experience for me. Love that I can do layers of paint.

I am satisfied with my white marker too.

Art Supplies

 

God help me, I bought more art supplies!

My first acrylic paints (already tried them and they are so smooth!) and I am almost done with my current art journal, so I purchased two. Once is very heavy thick paper perfect for mixed media (on the left), and the other is a sketchbook but is also suitable for light washes (on the right). And pens. More pens. And finally a white permanent marker that actually works! Sadly it is not a fine tip, but I am managing.

I also got glossy gel medium. Which is awesome but it is sooo sticky and disgusting when it gets on my fingers. Worse then glue 🙁

But I am very excited and I am already trying all of these 😀

Infinite Blue // June 10, 2015

 

The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural… The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white.”

Wassily Kandinsky
