    1,789 views 1 year ago
    This video is an Amsterdam Standard Series Acrylics review. I'm showing how they spread across a canvas board, how they layer, how you can glaze with them, and how similar they are to Liquitex Basics. I also discuss their lightfastness and how I started using them.

    'Wanna take up painting and drawing? I teach and encourage beginning artists by sharing my experience with making art. I give tips, do tutorials, and discuss the process of making visual art and what it can do for people. I work in acrylics and graphite doing portraits and wildlife. I will be showing my mistakes and rethinkings when doing tutorials because I believe in being as honest as possible with my viewer. For me, art has always been about the joy of creating, of bringing something into existence that wasn't there before. I love knowing that I can bring a bit more beauty and joy into people's lives. Also, ever since I was a kid, I've loved setting challenges for myself and conquering them. Nothing lets me do all three of these things, creating, adding beauty, and conquering challenges, better than painting and drawing.
