A4 sketchbook: Old lumpy acrylics

This not my own paint, I was visiting and found some.old but good quality Cryla Galleria paint in the garage. The range of colours is very narrow and the white is very lumpy. Nonetheless, it gives interesting texture for free.

With the DofE season about to start, I fancy taking a set of acrylics for campsite evenings. They need to be small tubes and a selection that I’ll actually use.

  • Titanium white
  • Burnt umber
  • Cadmium orange
  • Pthalo blue
  • Cerulean blue
  • Rose madder
  • (Pthalo green?),

Acrylic D2: boy

2nd session,A4 sketchbook..

I should have taken a photo after the 1st session yesterday. Problem was it was so fragmented that I was all set on scrapping the picture by bedtime. In the morning, various solutions were floating in my mind. Maybe layer up tissue paper and paint over that; prime the page with gesso; wash over with burnt umber.

I did the latter while looking at the photo without glasses. It will look better with some skin tones and hair, I hope.
