Laura portrait, acrylic underpainting.

Acrylic underpainting in A3 sketchbook. I'm tempted to go for oils on top of this underpainting (you can put oils on top of acrylics but not the other way round).


I was listening to a conversation the other day (on the TV not hiding behind the counter of M&S spying on passers by!!) between someone and Grayson Perry. It was on styles of painting, and one of them said that if we all "painted what we saw perfectly without any mistakes" all paintings would end up as photographic images. What then would make your style; what would make you different. The answer is your mistakes. It's the mistakes that make your painting yours. Now there's a thought.
