i use princeton aspen mottlers early on in the process, then princeton umbria bright (and sometimes dagger) brushes. this very stiff giant filbert can get some weird effects with fluid acrylics.

my palette knives are all cheap/generic whatever, though my favorite has a sharp pointed tip that's good for scratching into the paint. the gray princeton catalyst wedge is pretty versatile for applying and removing.

a lot of times, i just smear stuff around with paper towels and liquitex flow-aid though

lefthand you've inspired me ha. i started painting the other day after just feeling totally out of control and i happened to have a panel of wood sitting on cinderblocks at home. super soothing to use a nice wide and dry flat brush.

that and digging into old Bomb Magazine interviews and finding one with one of my absolute favorite painters, Neo Rauch. It's all got me really into that lofty and inviting mindset that painting enables.

I made a pretty ramshackle stop animation to a Dehd song I've been obsessed with, thanks to the ol' quarantine.

Started making this drip painting with old house paints in March after making a much smaller and much cooler one with the same paints first try. The gold enamel takes forever to dry, smells like metastatic cancer, and doesn't play well with the others, but after months of going over it I just covered it in gold enamel and it's cool enough to stop I guess. A quarantine painting.

:) hell that's nice of you

lefthandshake's are all astounding to me I wish I could make anything like them purposefully.

On mine there's probably seven to ten layers of very thick paint dried slowly everywhere. Places where the enamel paint was under the acrylic would craze and bubble (I couldn't resist popping most of the little plastic bubbles). Black vs gold is a very thin coat of black spray paint picked up by the last application of the enamel and it's solvents

I’ve never used their watercolor paint, just their brushes. My go to brand for watercolors is kuretake.

Damn bmovers congrats! That painting is so good, damn. The colors and smoothness of application and line quality. I love it. Is it just on canvas?

I’m currently working on finishing a painting I started back in 2012 and promptly packed away, taped to a board and forgot about for 8 years. Goal is to finish it before 2020 is up :?

thanks! yep, just a standard, stretched canvas. i think the act of staring down a blank canvas and filling it up was a daunting one after so much time off. now that i've completed one, i'm itching to keep going.

i also have a canvas that i started like 6 years ago right after my daughter was born and then abandoned. i think i may attempt to resurrect/finish that one up next. you should, too!

I hoped to make something bigger and maybe even on a canvas during covid but still mostly using ink in a book
