Good morning!! [Mar. 11th, 2004|10:05 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Let me see, I woke up, hit some email, did some Tae Bo, and now I'm getting ready to paint!

You can watch me HERE!

I did a BUNCH of shopping at http://www.misterart.com (EBSQ members - you automatically get a VIP discount there - very cheap!!!). Among other things, I bought a 18 foot by 5 foot ROLL of primed cotton canvas (the same stuff I use now, but in a big long roll!). I'd like to turn that into some larger paintings - maybe like Amber suggested, unusually shaped long narrow paintings (that would be pretty cool!). For anything that large though, I really think I'd want to put it at a set price in my eBay store instead putting it up for a traditional auction. I really need to stock up my eBay store since I've sold all of my paintings!!!

I'm working on "Alice Falling Down the Rabbit Hole" and it's coming along smashingly!!! I've got Alice just about finished, and now I'm going to put in the background elements. I should be finished in time to list her tonight!!!! She's a whopping 16"x20", and looks very cool so far. I will probably also list some of my recent pieces for this week's print sale!!! I think I'll go with "Mother Nature: Bringer of Death", "Rude Faeries", & "Butterfly Charmer". Sale prices will be $10.00 for the 8"x10" sizes, and $20.00 for the 12"x16" sizes.

Okay, off to paint!!!

When you do big paintings like that, and still add loads of details, what size paint brush do you use?

The same sizes I use for small paintings!

Every painting I do generally uses about 15 brushes of different sizes - from the little tiny script-liner brushes to the 1.5" fan brushes. I don't really like using anything bigger than a 1.5" brush, even for painting large areas.

Oh cuteness! Adorable Alice. It's fun to see you work, and extremely interesting. It's just sad that the picture isn't bigger so that one can see the work in progress better.

I use liquid or "fluid" acrylic paints!

I like Golden brand, Delta Creamcoat, or Folk Art Artist's pigment the best!!!
