Acrylic on textured canvas
I was in college when artist acrylic paints first came out. I was working in oils at the time but hated how long they took to dry. Many times our canvases would get ruined when fellow students were careless in storing the canvases for the next class. So, I was pretty excited about the new products and was anxious to give them a try. Well, surprise surprise! The new acrylics were simply awful! I remember trying to mix some colors together on my palette when suddenly everything turned into a totally useless gooey purple ball
Thank goodness things have come a long way! We have an enormous assortment of colors and mediums available to use today that make it easy for the acrylic painter. But, I've discovered that many of my students still don't know how to properly dispose of their dirty rinse water. I too was just pouring it down the drain until we bought a home with a septic system. It occurred to me that dumping that nasty stuff was not such a great idea. I did a little research online and found that there is a right way to get rid of rinse water, and it does not involve sand! I've streamlined the information I found online and it is one of the first things I teach my workshop students.
