I'm working again, for now, with Wabi-Sabi Art Workshop by Serena Barton. I love this book, although it calls for a lot of art materials that I don't have and don't feel inclined to purchase. For instance, in the section on abstract landscapes from which I was inspired to paint this piece, the author uses Adirondack re-inkers with acrylic glaze medium to create thin glazes of color. I'm using fluid acrylics instead of re-inkers to create my color glazes.
It feels a lot more in keeping with the wabi-sabi concept (things old, worn, well used, recycled, imperfect, etc.) to use what I already have, as much and as often as possible, than to buy yet more art supplies.
