A rethink…

I've been getting into skies recently… especially stormy skies. The acrylic inks, which I'm using at the moment, dry incredibly quickly – I doubt if I get more that a minute's worth of workability! This made me think "perhaps I need open (ie. very slow drying acrylics) rather than flow (ie. watery) acrylics?" Both kinds of paints have their advantages and disadvantages, so I might acquire a combo of these two types. Whatever the solution is, it's damn hard to get the effect I'm after, but there's ways and means around this… and the results have been none too bad.
