  1. I love your style and this painting is beautiful. How do you deal with the acrylics wanting to dry so quickly? I know that you are painting in a cooler climate and do you continue throughout the summer using them? I live in a hotter climate especially during the summer and I find that acrylics doesn’t work too well.

  2. Thanks Margaret… yes, that is the big challenge of acrylic– especially when the weather is hot and dry. I try to work in the shade when possible and I squeeze my tubes onto a strip of paper towel that I’ve soaked with water. This helps them stay relatively wet. I also always have a spray bottle on hand to mist everything. I love painting on a foggy day– I feel uncrushed because the light isn’t changing and the paint isn’t drying. The nice advantage of the paint drying fast is you can layer things almost instantly, which is what I see as a limitation with oils.
