Took a large canvas acrylics class called "Fearless"and forced myself to abandon my frugalness (with paint in this case) and my need for realism. Threw out the inhibitions and obsessions with planning every move and placement.
Using acrylic paint with gel and molding paste to give texture and depth. 30x48"
Lots of get medium here combined with gorgeous rust and golds. 30x48"
Process of laying the base colors, using texture, then layering washes. Flooding the wash with water and removing to reveal the colours beneath.
”The seed of your next art work lies embedded in the imperfections of your current piece. Such imperfections (or mistakes, if you’re feeling particularly depressed about them today) are your guides -- valuable, reliable, objective, non-judgmental guides -- to matters you need to reconsider or develop further.” -- David Bayles and Ted Orland
