5x7 inches, acrylic on canvasboard
I'm back playing around with acrylic techniques. Jana, another blogger, commented on how much she enjoyed a videotape by artist Jackie Miller entitled 16 Acrylic Painting Techniques. I ordered the tape via our excellent interlibrary loan system, and watched it in four viewings - four techniques a day. While I did not make a sampler illustrating the techniques as Jana did, I took notes and I've begun trying to incorporate some of Miller's techniques in my work.
Here is another little painting I did after reading a newsletter from acrylic artist Robert Burridge. It's a exercise in color combinations, with this one being based on a yellow green. He used cad green, but I mixed what I had. I incorporated some of the techniques from the Miller tape, including scratching out, using glazes made from paint and matte gel medium, and stenciling. I may experiment with using oil paint over the acrylic in a few places later on.
Note to self: Wear the apron you bought so that you don't mess up another good tee shirt with paint that does not wash out!
