A couple of weeks ago I purchased 6 of the 15 colors available of Claudine Hellmuth's Studio acrylic paints.
This weekend I tried them out in my visual journal which is a perfect place to try new things.
In this first picture, I have only used the Studio paints. I did use a little gesso but found the white Studio (not shown) did what I wanted the gesso to do.
The paints are very creamy which is not always a plus for me. They are all translucent and therefore will layer nicely just like watercolor. In fact I did enjoy using water with them and using them like watercolor.
As mentioned, I only purchased 6 colors. I found myself wanting a different value. I remember there was a brown and black and maybe I should have purchased those too. My intention was to use other mediums and I will.
I guess I should try them now on a canvas. Maybe I have time to do that today.
