Thank you for those heart warming words, Marie. I am having fun painting with acrylics, but I still have quite a ways to go, before my acrylic portraits turn out the way I would like them to look. I suffer from wanting my drawings and paintings to look realistic, instead of abstract. It would be so much easier if I could settle for the latter. :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss:

it dosen't ,necessary need to be more realistic, really, according to me the most important is the feeling they create when one's looks at them and you always manage to put love in your work, whether it's drawing or a painting ! :magic: :cute: :whip: :whip: :blowkiss:

Thank you for the fine compliment, Jeanette. One of my recent purchases was a Masterson's Wet Palette, along with a sponge for the tray and a package of 30 sheets of paper made especially for it. (The sponge and paper were extra, however. They did not come with the palette box.) This has been a great aid, when I am working with acrylics. If I have to stop in the middle of a painting, the wet palette (with its air tight lid) keeps my paints moist for at least a week. :hug: :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :cute:

Thank you for the lovely words, Ray. I tried hard to get a good likeness of Colin. I am still learning how to use those paints. I am not as confident with them, as I am with graphite, or even the oils I used to paint with. :hug: :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :cute:

If I hang in there, and don't give up, eventually I hope to arrive where I want to be. It is a lot tougher for me to paint a face upon canvas, where I do not have the aid of a light box for guidance, than for me to draw it on paper with the help of a light box. Making corrections with paint, isn't as easy, either.

Thanks, Ray. Your words of encouragement are heartening. I shall pursue acrylics, until we become "close friends." Ha! Meanwhile, I will stay in practice with the graphite pencils. :grin: :hug: :hug: :whip:

Merci pour le compliment, Manny. L'achat récent d'une palette humide Masterson a grandement m'ont aidé dans mon travail acryliques. Il garde mes peintures humide plus longtemps, parce qu'ils sont assis sur une feuille de papier spécial qui a été trempé dans l'eau chaude. Le document, à son tour, repose sur une éponge qui a été trempé dans l'eau froide. Quand je arrêter de peindre, j'ai mis sur le couvercle étanche à l'air sur la palette, et les peintures resteront humides pendant au moins une semaine. :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :cute:

You're very welcome Jojemo! Yes I know this! One on my friend use this technic and she show me how keep my paints several days, to avoid waste. This is exactly the same thing you describe to me but I haven't still, I try to put a little paint on my palette. :cute: :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss:

You seem to be well acquainted with the English language. Would it be all right for me to use English when I reply to you? I do not know French. I have to use Google Translate for other languages.

Oh it's just a impression, I understand when the vocabulary is simple but I don't know speak. I learn when I watch series and movies in English, I try to progress like this. No problem Jojemo, if it's more easy for you to speak in English, you can do and like that, I can work my English too (maybe a day I wouldn't need to use Google Translate :) ).

Yes it's maybe true, but now we have no choice. English is mandatory at school and It's the "international language". Oh french is not the more simple language, even for us :laugh: :cute: :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :blowkiss:

It would be nice if several foreign languages were mandatory in our schools, also. But deciding which ones would be difficult, since our country consists of immigrants from many countries. No matter which ones were chosen, many people would be unhappy because theirs wasn't one of them. I wish I had taken French in school, but Spanish is the only other language I know anything about.

Yes, I think too. The problem in France is that we learn languages ​​too late, around 12 years. I live on the border of a very little country where people speak at least 4 languages​​, children learn to 3-4 years and speak several languages (I always ashamed when I see that I speak one language). Yes USA is different, it's a very large country but the problem is similar and there will always be people unhappy... ( I was in Florida 13 years ago, my best travel!).

What brought you to Florida, and where in Florida were you? I met my husband in Miami, FL. I was a Flight Attendant with Eastern Air Lines then, and Ed was an Air Traffic Controller. Airplanes had quite an influence upon our children. Oldest son worked for Boeing Aircraft. Oldest and middle daughters became Air Traffic Controllers. Youngest son was in the US Air Force. Only one who didn't have anything to do with airplanes, is our youngest daughter. She worked for the US Army Corps of Engineers. She is now working for the US State Department.

The planes are really at the center of your family is awesome! I am afraid of the plane, I'm well as the landing! Florida was an opportunity at the time, my parents paid cheap for 4 peoples and we were with family who had already had several times in America. I was in Orlando, I remember we made several parks like See World, Universal Studios and Magic Kingdom. Awesome, a dream that I never found in French parks. I was also in Key West. I would like to return!

Well you have done something I haven't done. I have never been to either of Disney's Amusement Parks. The closest to them that I have attended, is the Six Flags Over Texas Amusement Park, and that was quite a few years ago. It does not have all of the make-believe features that the Disney parks have, but it does have a lot of rides. Other than that, I have been in all of the States, except Hawaii and Rhode Island.

I think we were in these Parks to see the size compared to France. It's impressive, They are real town! In France, Disneyland Paris don't make dream (not me, after I have saw in Orlando), it takes up the attractions of the Americans parks but they don't go to the end of the dream. Now I would like visit the country; New York, Louisiana, West Coast and another beautiful sites. You have travel! Well, what state do you prefer?

 
13 8035
Jojemo
Jojemo - hace 8 años

You ask me what state do I prefer. That is a difficult question for me to answer. In a country as vast as ours is, there is something beautiful, remarkable, or entirely different to seen in every state. Also, what is beautiful to one person, may not appear that way to another. Each individual sees things differently. Some people like flat, wide-open country, where distant objects are not obscured by tall buildings in the foreground, and one can see for miles. Others prefer the bustle of big cities or the relative quiet of rural country. Still others like dense forests of huge, old trees, some perhaps covered with hanging moss, or the grandeur of high mountains. Standing on the shore of a vast ocean, listening to its pounding surf, while high overhead, the seagulls are screaming, would give a beautiful feeling to some people. I could write a book about the beautiful places I have been to and many of the interesting things I have seen, but this would not be the place for it.

manny
manny - hace 8 años

Yes, of course, my question was stupid. I understand your point of vue, every states are different, like french regions, some people love the south for the beach and sun, St Tropez for the stars people side... the same reason in fact. I could write a book also!

 
15 8035
Jojemo
Jojemo - hace 8 años

Your question was not stupid, Manny. It was just one I cannot honestly answer. There is no State that I prefer above any other. I do like some more than others, but this might be based upon my experiences while I was there. Also, although I have been in all of our States, except for two, I have not completely explored some of them. Some, I have passed through rather quickly. This would hardly be the best way to become familiar with anyone or anything. I have found that first impressions are not always accurate. Often there is more of interest to explore in a person, a place, or a thing,, than what first meets with one's eyes. If I had to decide between going to an amusement park or going to Yellowstone National Park, I would probably pick the latter one. I enjoy viewing beautiful scenery that God has created. I appreciate an opportunity to see wild animals in their natural habitat, more than I relish the excitement of wild rides upon a roller-coaster, or similar things. Niagara Falls is awesome. The same can be said for the Grand Canyon. Those are only two of the many places I have been to in our country, that are impressive. There are many others, but I cannot list all of them here.

I don't know how I missed this when you first posted it, but it's wonderful! I'm struggling to master acrylics also. I imagine I can make them behave like oils, but haven't been able to make them do that. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :whip: :whip: :whip: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thank you for the compliment. I know where you are coming from, when you say you imagine you can make acrylics behave like oils. I tried that also, but I found that it doesn't work with them. Old habits die hard! It has been over a month now, since I have taken out my acrylic paints,. And this is despite the fact I purchased a jar of Liquitex Slow-Dri Blending Gel; which, when blended with those paints, is supposed to retard their drying time. I haven't even given the gel a try. I need to. The gel was rather pricey. Instead, I have retreated back to my graphite pencils. Now, of course, I have the wet palette, so the jar of gel will probably not be used. :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :cute:

You're welcome! I made an accidental discovery last week. I ran out of the gesso I usually use to prime my canvas, so I substituted a coat of latex interior primer (Zinzer ; I had some left over from a household project). It's considerably less expensive than gesso, and gave me a much more workable base for the acrylics. It's great for corrections, too. I have used the Slow-Dri Blending Gel, and it does work to retard the drying time. I'm having fun with the primer though -- it produces a different effect. Have a great day! :grin: :grin: :hi: :hi:

Thanks for the information. It is always nice to know there are other options, when we need an item that we don't have. I probably won't use the Slo-Dri Gel,. I should have bought the wet palette first, but they didn't have it in my art supply., when I was looing for it. I guess they were just out of it, because they have it now. I bought mine when we were in Albuquerque, New Mexito in July. I had to buy the sponge and some palette paper, too. Those items don't come with the palette box. :ok: :grin: :blowkiss: :hi:
