Ok, I have made the decision to get good quality paints. I am using really cheap grade tube paints right now. And I do mean cheap. I do not like the way things have been going with these paints. So, I figure it is either me, or the paints. If I get new paints and I still have the same issues then I will know it is me. But if it solves my issues it will be well worth the money spent.
Here is a cropping from the painting I did today. I actually like this cropping a quite a bit, so the painting was not a loss.
After I get the new paints I am going to try this painting again. When I do, I will show you the full painting both with the old paints and with the new. When you see it you will understand why I didn't like the full thing.
