James HenningerAbout the paintings

To be truthful these are the only paintings I've ever done so far. My first love will always be pen & ink without it I wouldn't be able to get the realism I've always wanted. But I knew there was a new level of realism I could achieve if I just took the time and patience learned how to paint. After taking 2 months off of drawing I and looking over my portfolio I realized that there was a way to get a true photo realistic piece on canvas.
Six months ago I was in Lowe's getting mounts for a frame, walking past the paint department I realized what's the difference in the acrylic paint you buy in the art store and the paint here.
Price for one. So I picked up 12,sets of 5 different colors in 1/2 pint sample cans that...
Do you ever paint with nothing in mind ? You know just get out a few colours and brush and see what happens .....
90 percent of the work I start is inspired by the flow of the paint and simply to see what emerges. I do enjoy the freedom of working intuitively it passes... view answer
