Hahahaha as long a you enjoy what you are doing that is all that Matters! I paint, I used mixed media, I revamp old things, I get bored easily so have to diversify hehehehe

Thanks everyone!!  Michele I use various texture pastes.  the one used here in the painting is Heritage  3D Contour paste.  It is course with fine like sand in it.  It comes in various colors but I am sure if you just get the normal light colour you could add any color acrylic paint for the color your need.  Deco Art Snow Tex is also great, and a finer sand in it. I also use our South African Dala texture paste you also get the course or fine.  Another one I used was Deco Art Decorating paste.  I used this to flowers and build up the petals.  Hope this helps you !

Thanks so much Michele - I'm also pleased.

yes I see the problem with the lighter one, but I was pleased with the shape of the bald head and he is a 'light' looking man.   The second was in charcoal, so of course darker.

fun to do them both.

Hope you could make out what I said just then I'm using my phone and i keep trying to shut down predictive text and it's only after I've posted something that I notice that it's all messed up with strange and unwanted words added paul xx

Hi Michele I was always good at makeing and fixing thing various health problems stopped all that. but hadn't the slightest in art until 2 years ago when both my parents died within a few months, when sort through the house I came across some a few bifeo of art stuff and though rather that throw it I'd use it as I has nothing else I could do. I try not to struggle with the detail because I can't do fine detail and I just I hope the little bit come together into something that doesn't look to bad. I'm very slap dask and most of the watercolours I'm doing take less than hour. I find the less I worry and think about the outcome the better they come out good luck and enjoy what you do ..Paul xx

Hi Shell,

Life is treating me good. How has your health been? Tell me about the area where you live. I don't know a lot about Australia except what I see in movies. Looks like a wonderful place to live. I think it would be great to visit there someday.

Hi - Thank you for liking my abstracts in acrylics. I really enjoy the mixed media that you do. They are all delightful. There is a book  called Wabi Sabi Art Workshop by Serena Barton. It is published by North Light Books. Really interesting stuff. Keep in touch.

Thank you for you kind comments on my watercolour one man and his dog,  watercolour s is something I only started 6_7 months ago  so it's still work in progress and I'm still picking bits up on technic

hi shell, course we know you're right.  and this place is now organized madness...lol.  i'm one who's always doodled around visual art.  i always felt my attempts were flukes, so i fear that somehow i won't be able to do it, if i lay off too long.  plus my brain just doesn't work in chaos.  but i'm going to paint a portrait on the door of my bureau. i'm excited about doing that,  wish me luck!!  you and others on the colony inspire me. i love that you try so many diff. things.  they're always uplifting.  wish me luck, miss lady.  enjoy Sunday.
