Do you stilll use the “Method” light? I like the idea of cool light but also like warm light too for other paintings. Elizabeth Robbins April 5, 2020 at 3:11 pmLog in to Reply I only use the method light if I want to change the temperature of my light source. I’ll do another lesson on that soon Josie James August 22, 2020 at 9:00 amLog in to Reply Very informative video! I like how you have two different sized shadow boxes. It would be great if you sold them. Elizabeth Robbins August 22, 2020 at 9:32 amLog in to Reply They are so easy to make that I never thought about selling them. Im glad you found the video helpful! Terri Melgar February 21, 2021 at 9:11 pmLog in to Reply I have a question about what more than toning the canvas or before toning the that I can do to reduce the absorbency of the canvas. Seems that overnight the paint has soaked I to the canvas. What would you suggest? Some of canvases are linen primed in acrylic….. they vary…… Thank you. Terri Elizabeth Robbins February 22, 2021 at 9:22 amLog in to Reply Acrylic is very absorbent. Toning the canvas with a color and Neo Megilp will reduce the absorbancy. You can also give it a coat of gamblin oil ground which I like to do. oil primed linen is much less absorbant.
