Attention all! I've come out of hiding and have a completed painting for you. If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember the incomplete acrylic piece I posted of the Kiskadee I spied in my backyard. Well, I finally completed it, filling in the branch and adding some new details. So, here it is. I tried a new technique to extend the "manipulation period" of the acrylics. I added glycerin to the paint to keep it wet. It worked so well that the acrylic sat there for over a month, uncovered and was still wet to the touch. How cool is that? Less wastage! The use of glycerin made it much easier to blend the colours after application.
