three paintings|december 12 am
I often work on several canvases at a time. This is for several reasons, only two of which I remember at the top of my head: first of all, economic reasons. One of my least favorite things about the acrylic medium (which is also one of my favorite things about it) is its rapid dryness factor. When I have more than one canvas at my disposal, I like to use whatever paint left over from one painting onto another. It saves time and paint and is all ’round more efficient. The second reason I like working on more than one painting is that I need to take a mental and physical break from one and start or resume work on another. I think I have a relatively short attention span (or a huge penchant for multi-tasking, I don’t know…). And this is why.
