Mixed Media Acrylic Painting in Progress by Polly Jones
24"x36" charcoal, paint, paper on canvas. I thought I'd take process shots of a larger painting I've been working on. The top picture shows the vine charcoal with which I draw out my
composition. In order to keep the black in it from mixing with my paint
later, I have to "fix" it by painting it with acrylic medium and letting
it dry. I am working from life but just took a photograph of my still life set up to show you what I'm looking at. The camera really sees things differently than the eye.
