Hello everyone. It has been non-stop here the last few weeks with family things, work and dog stuff. I have a few paintings on the burner, but I actually managed to complete two recently.
Acrylic on Canvas Board – 10 x 12 inches
I used my regular artists acrylic paint, with some fluid and open paint. On the one below, I added a texture paste to the canvas prior to painting.
Acrylic on Canvas – 60x40cm
I started both at the same time as I had the colors I needed already out. Working on two different surfaces is interesting as the paint goes on in different ways. The canvas board is obviously a more rigid surface which makes the paint flow more smoothly. The painting above has a thin profile and the sides are painted black. I have been trying to work out how to frame it, but in the meantime it shall just hang as is. The smaller painting will just fit into a standard 10×12 inch picture frame. The smaller painting was always intended on being in portrait format, but the large canvas lends itself to a landscape. I had to flip it around a few times to work out which way I liked it best. I might even keep it!
