Well I hit the wall a bit with my writing and fell under about 3000 word count required. I really felt like abandoning everything as too hard but took some deep breaths and threw on my headphones and found some epic fantasy music on Youtube to write too – and smashed out 3k words in an hour or so.
Fingers are still tingling and I’m about 800 behind now but closing back in.
Art wise I made a big switch to acrylic paints and increased my canvas size to A3 from A4 which gives me a lot more room to play with. As with everything there will be a sizable transition period between what worked in water colors and inks and what works in acrylics.
While at the art supply store I made the exciting discovery of water soluble oil paints – a special type of oil paints that washes out in water. I was very tempted to buy a starter pack but wanted to work through all the mediums in some kind of logical order (well order in my head) so I resisted but will definitely transition to those next.
