this is a 24×36″ acrylic on canvas with a gel matte finish! The finish is new, and makes it feel so fancy (to me, anyways). i have plans to properly photograph this with my dslr, so here’s an iphone pic to enjoy in the meantime!
i’m thinking about spring colours today, the daffodils in my neighbour’s yard and the yellow roses outside my work building, and the pink cherry blossoms by the water! i’m feeling inspired and positively motivated. after work, i plan to pick up another 24×36″ canvas to play with on my days off.
an old acrylic i felt like sharing! i’ve been primarily using watercolours for the past couple of months, but i’m thinking i should get back into acrylics.
honestly, i’m over the moon with this 4×6 foot painting. i did it in an all-nighter with a palate knife and some great music. the colours and the movement are wonderful to me, and while i know there is most definitely room for improvement, i would love to keep workin on a large scale such as this one. more big canvases for me please!
do you prefer to work on a large or small scale? let me know!
since moving my art space to the living room where i have more area and better lighting i’m getting back into acrylic painting! here are some warm-up paintings i’ve done recently while playing with colours.
painted in september 2016 for a good friend of mine, acrylic on foamcore. this one was quite fun to paint, and i got to use a lot of pthalo green which makes me happy!
