Workshop with Golden Open Acrylics
Ok well, I made the plunge---to try Golden Open acrylics. I loved this workshop with local artist Diane Fraser. She is such a great teacher and gave us lots of information (aha moments!) and introduced us to these great acrylics. They are more transparent than the regular acrylics so you use them along with the regular acrylics but the glazing and workable effect is amazing. AND they stay on your pallet and wet for an hour or even longer. She is an oil painter and she said this is a great invention by Golden. I loved them and had to get all the colors but I will use them for my faces since it stays workable and blend-able longer. So basically you under-paint with regular acrylics then glaze (and glaze and glaze, if desired!)) with the opens. I love em!
