In my quotation journal. The quote is from my beloved Walt Whitman;

The "julification" has begun! These are my first and second attempts from lesson 1 of the Layer Love course with Julie Prichard. I can already tell that I am going to learn a tonne! ...about acrylics, about the play between opacity and translucency when painting, about new and exciting techniques for making richly layered, aged and urban looking pieces like Julie does. It's still not too late to sign up if you're interested!
