No, I haven’t mis-spelled one of the dorms at Hogwarts. That’s what happens to artists when they paint in 103 degree heat. You’ll slither with sweat the minute you leave the door in South Carolina in 90% humidity. Hop in the car which is now 117 degrees on the indicator. By the time you start to set up, your clothes are drenched, your hair is in strings and your eyeglasses are slithering off your face. Your brushes are slithering out of your hands. The paint is pooling and separating on your pallette You swirl and swirl your color mixes and apply. It’s like painting with watercolor, except that at least watercolor dries and stops running. Painting medium is absolutely not necessary today.
Did you know that paint will not adhere to canvas and board that has been sweated on? Yeah, oil and sweat don’t mix.
