Yeah...i like to give stuff away sometimes. And sometimes there is just this push kind'a feeling that sez to me that this should be a gift. Very nice and expressive. I like the palette choices, and especially i like those choices in the shadows. Really good piece of work!
You can buy a retarder which works to some degree, but I find that if I am painting outdoors, it's good to have the paint dry fast so I can get on with it! What needs inventing is paint that responds to vocal commands like - "dry you #*x^"<*" or "stay wet you "%$#&*"...
I was visiting Coochie (a small coastal island) and these folks are residents there. They are not well enough to walk about on the island anymore and so miss most of it's natural beauty. They were neighbours where we were staying. They really liked the painting and wanted to buy it, but I couldn't put a price on it mainly because the giving of it was worth more than money. This may sound corny but that's what I thought!
I like it! And I bet the elderly couple will give it a good place, and will talk about "that nice painter" for years to come Doesn't acrylic outside dry within seconds on a sunny day like that by the way??
