So, the image here is of one of my earlier casein pictures. When I first tried it I had just bought the small set and immediately found that it handles like watercolor – except when it doesn’t! After playing with it a while I became hooked on it.
I had already done a picture of tulips in watercolor and decided to try them in casein. This picture is on an 11x14 canvas and not a lot of change in colors, since I didn’t have that many and, as mentioned, had some problems mixing colors in my new medium. Overall, I am still happy with it.
I also work in fluid acrylics – just can’t do well with regular acrylics, don’t know why.
It’s fun now to pick and choose which medium to work in - casein, fluid acrylic or watercolor - for each piece.
