Competative Painting and Painting in General

Rate this Entry

Well hello to all and welcome to my blog. This is my first blog entry as yoiu may have guessed. I will be posting some of my WIP within the coming weeks for your viewing pleasures.

So for you pros out there. I have been painting for almost 3 years now and  hope to enter the GD in Baltimore this year. I have basic concepts as well as certain advanced techniques down but need some advice on what type of paints to use considering I have been starting to dislike the citadel range for months now. I am also somewhat curious if all pros out there use Windsor-Newton brushes...they are way out of my budget so any suggestions would be extremely helpful. Also, I seem to be having strange concerns with GD judging biasts...from previous years competitions, I have noticed they tend to pull for traditional paint schemes w/ advanced techniques. If they have that bias towards schemes...do they have any towards major conversions and fluffer nutters? Any answers or suggestions would be incredibly helpful.

    well, to answer your first question, try some different ranges to find what you like best. My personal favorites is the Reaper master series line. with the brushes, go to:

    www.dickblick.com

    they sell them usually for 75% off. shipping is terrible so buy a good number of brushes if you decide to make a purchase. Yeah some of the judges are biased based on technique and such. Conversions usually make the decision on weather or not your entry will get gold or silver in combination with a great paint job. The judges are fluff nuts so do your homework when you do conversions.
