I know... What next? But, there is a good reason!

Koo Schadler's "Old Master Design Workshop" works surprisingly in acrylics. She feels that this fast moving medium is better suited than egg tempera for learning and experimenting with technique. I plan on attending this class in June and want to gain some experience. Where am I going to keep all this stuff? :-) Thanks go out to Gretchen for her thoughts on my starter set!


  1. Oooh! I am so excited for you! Just wait until you try a few thin glazes with those earthy quinacridones- you will be hooked! And if you thought it was joyful to be able to work 'quickly' with your watercolors again, acrylics will shock you- plus once dry ( and we are talking minutes here ) you can layer until your heart's content without fear of pulling up or muddying what is underneath. Acrylics are so versatile; what ever you are in the mood for, can usually be accomplished with them; from heavy impasto techniques to traditional watercolor and everything inbetween. SO much fun!
    I do hope enjoy working with them!

  2. Your enthusiasm is entirely contagious. The watercolor goes by the wayside for this evening! :-)

    Thanks again for your help.
