Applause for Golden Artist Colors

This past week I attended a product demonstration given by Golden Artist Colors company at Alabama Art Supply in Mobile, Alabama.  I use Golden brand paints and consider them my first choice of brand for acrylics.  I wanted to learn best practices for using various mediums and techniques to make sure all my paintings are durable for my customers.  As an artist, I also wanted to keep myself alert for new techniques to better my painting skills.

I was delighted with everything about the demonstration.  Artist, K. D. Tobin, was an excellent speaker for the event.  His painting style and process is very different from mine, but everything he discussed kept my thoughts clicking along on how I could use what was said to enhance my paintings. 
The next morning I eagerly applied texture and shimmery bronze and gold touches to create shore bird paintings.  What a difference those two additions made!   Both paintings have a sculpture-like relief texture that adds atmosphere and mood.  It is nice to see impressionism and abstraction meet.  I will be doing more of this work.

Hats off to Golden Artist Colors, K. D. Tobin and Alabama Art Supply for a fine learning event!   None of them paid me to say this either....
