Recently I have been working on larger paintings inspired by the canoeing and painting trip in August. Here is the first. I decided to work with my acrylics and have been having a great time discovering them again. I really enjoy watering down the paint, letting it be drippy and messy as I sketch out the composition. I then try to let those areas show through the final layers. That is one thing I now remember loving about acrylics- the layering and glazing and building up that can be done in a relatively short period of time because they dry so fast. The same certainly cannot be said for oils, but I love them for different reasons!
