Swimming, Acrylic Exploration #4

Swimming, acrylic on canvas, 12×16″. I love the pink coming through the cooler colors. I’ve been trying to replicate that effect on other paintings, but haven’t gotten to happen again yet… This painting was painted on with a brush and taken back off with the pallet knife. This painting has edges that are kind of …

Mountain, Acrylic Exploration #3

Mountain, sold. Here it is with tomorrow’s exploration. Both these paintings have edges that are kind of raw. If you look closely you can see they’re white with a lot of drips across them. Mountain is fully cured, so I tested out an acrylic brush-on varnish on it. It’s nice, and I like that it’s …

Self Portrait, abstract painting on paper

This month I’m investigating abstract ideas and techniques both for their own merit, but also because I think it will add something to my landscapes and portraits. I’ve been feeling more and more like my muse is back, and I’m seeing compositions and choices in my art that first appeared in art school a long …

Seeing Through, abstract acrylic techniques combined with landscape layout

I wanted to push the techniques I’ve been discovering farther – and bigger. I’m not sure if it comes through in a photo, but there’s a layering depth that I am loving. This is my first real painting (rather than a technique test or study) in this medium. I’d love your feedback. Seeing Through, 20×16″, …

Are you entranced by the colors that poke through the snow, too?

I’ve been experimenting like crazy with Acrylics this month… I feel like this exploration will add a depth to my portraits and landscapes. This little painting took a few days, with lots of drying time between coats. I wanted to replicate the beautiful effect of opaque snow sitting on the amber wheat fields. This scene …
