During the corona virus ‘shelter-at-home time’, March-May, I followed along with artist Matt Philleo in the challenge he was offering as free online lessons every few days. I liked the idea of doing a special project during this strange time, and I liked the encouragement to use a 16 x 20 size, which I have never done before.
I had tried glazing with acrylics a few years ago, but probably was doing it too thickly and impatiently. It didn’t go very well. This time, with his instruction to use 95% matte medium to 5% paint, and paint so lightly that you can hardly see the difference, it went a lot better and I like the result!

Did you really paint this? it looks so professional! MPG
Thanks! All due to the acrylic glazing process taught by Matt Philleo-a slow and steady development of a painting in very small increments.
