An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
Hello, I'm looking for tips on enjoying the winter painting experience, I work in acrylics, is this a problem?
It is a problem if your are trying to paint below freezing. Acrylics are water soluble, like watercolor. Try working from the comfort of a heated truck or automoble. You can turn in on every so often to warm things up.... and don't forget the cup holder! You just need to limit your paint colors on your palette and the size of your painting surface, board or canvas. If you are left handed, you can sit in the passengers side and put you palette behind the steering wheel. I have painted plein air watercolors for years in below freezing snow drifts, warm and toasty in the car. Remember to put down a drop cloth, or take the SUV or Van and paint in the back. Or, move south y'all.
