Really had the spirit for painting this morning. I chose one with a black canvas since I had one (12"x16") prepared the other day. Started of well yet ran into trouble with the mountains. I have an excellent knife, knew perfectly what to do with it yet now I believe that I have used the wrong kind of paint. I used an older, more fluid kind of Titanium white and that killed it. The rest of the painting I did with more professional (harder) paint so that went better. Still had major trouble with the trees and all because of a brand new set of wave brushes that in fact turned out to be rubbish! Slowly but surely, I'm learning the hard way on techniques, quality of materials and talent (or the lack of that).
One good advice I can give about this painting is NOT to use too much phtalo blue to cover over the liquid clear. I thought I did not yet ended up in a sea of blue at moments!
