Paula Strother enjoys working with acrylic paint, as its flow and quickness in drying lets her work spontaneously. An additional advantage is the ability to apply paint thickly for texture or watered down for a softer look. Paula likes to work from photographs she's taken of landscapes, people, architecture, and places she's traveled. "I am interested in light on subjects adding a dramatic look to the painting," she says. "Working with a quick brush is the norm, but I occasionally enjoy the process of capturing details and a more realistic look."
