And then, what is the best way to hold your brush when you are applying an acrylic?
Yes, I do think it’s best to wet the brush before adding the paint. This way, I know what parts of the brush will get the paint on and where to apply my paint.
How is your spray paint work? Do you spray the brush and water on separate times?
My spray paint is done through the same method: when I want it. Just as on a regular canvas. The first time I spray a waterline I’ll spray just enough paint, so I’m not wasting a lot of water. And then when the water runs out, I spray the water and then add it to the water line. If it looks too thick and looks like your paint is going to get on it, I’ll add a little bit more water.
What is the most important thing you want someone to be able to do during a painting session, in terms of how long you should plan out your painting session and what you do when your time comes?
You have to be able to plan. That’s a big part of painting. Plan well, and your paintings will come out exactly as you wanted them to.
Which of the paintings that you have done, and your approach, would you say is your “true” masterpiece?
Some days the picture just doesn’t come together. But I’m always trying to do my best. I’ve always tried to create a better piece of work than I imagined. With this one I felt at times I’d been rushed by the process, but the end results were worth that. I don’t know what my final masterpiece would look like but to me it’s worth keeping in mind
