Total glaze of joy/doom
Why did it take me 10 years to discover acrylic mediums? Have Rheni Tauchid to thank for using them, as suggested in her two books The New Acrylics and New Acrylics Essential Sourcebook, both of which I would recommend if you view acrylics as a faster-drying oils substitute (as I did.)
Anyway, cannot get this piece in focus, so this photo is going up for now.

My arms were screwed by RSI from about Jan this year. I couldn't play guitar, draw, write, or even hold a book open for very long goddamnit. I could, however, paint in a fairly loose and gentle manner, by holding the brush in the position that ye do when applying paint to large areas.
This has meant that the more detailed illustration I used to do, and finally gave up due to frustration, is gone, but it has led to me actually enjoying painting again, and so this blog will be updated regularly!
