Tonight I wanted to try out a new gadget my dad made for me- it holds my video camera closer to my easel so my big ol' hair doesn't get in the way. My oils are at the gallery, so I thought I'd give painting in acrylics a whirl. I had seven tubes of acrylic paint, a glass of water, some old brushes and a 9x12 canvas panel. What could I lose? I lost a lot of patience and some pride! I rattled on and on and the thing took almost an hour! So I replaced the audio with some music and compressed the time to about eight minutes. It still may be too long- you'll have to judge. Anyway, here is the result of my effort to paint with acrylics.
