My latest painting is an 8 x 10 inch acrylic on stretched canvas.
I used Liquitex acrylic paints for this one. Still my favorite brand for acrylic paints!
Here’s a video “how-to” on painting miniature art in watercolor. The techniques used in the video will also work with larger painting sizes. I hope you give it a try!

Beautiful Evening (2.5 x 3.5 inches; acrylics)
My latest painting was completed with Liquitex Acrylic Paints. I find the Liquitex brand to be one of the best acrylic paints on the market. I am enjoying the acrylic experience! This one is a personal favorite.
I painted this miniature on July 11, 2017. This miniature was completed with Liquitex acrylic paints on black canvas panel. I’m very pleased with how it turned out!
Here’s a quick video of the painting process for this acrylic painting…

The completed painting…
I was able to get in some oil painting practice using my homemade pochade box on location on June 10, 2017.
I found a great spot in the shade and painted this scene of some grain elevators in Hull, Illinois. I’m not real thrilled with the finished oil sketch, but it was good practice. I recently modified my homemade cigar box pochade with a T-nut so I could mount it to a camera tripod. My first attempt at this modification failed, but I was able to rework it. The new fitting worked like a charm.
A nearby resident stopped by to see what I was doing. I had a nice conversation with him, and he even brought me a cold Pepsi to drink. Rural America at its best!
All-in-all, an enjoyable day of painting and watching trains pass by!
