Kelly - Paintings 72 -74
9x12 Acrylic Paper, Acrylic
I painted this Carolina Wren about a week ago with a palette knife and lots of thick, rich paint. The paint just finished drying enough to go under the scanner's glass today. I'd never painted with a palette knife before, and I really liked it! The painting has the look of carved leather--the scanner didn't do this one justice...
This painting has also been sitting for about a week waiting to dry. When applied thick, the Open Acrylics really do act like oils. I didn't use a palette knife on this one...just quick strokes of thick paint with a brush.
I drew and painted this one over a period of three days sitting in my car as I waited to pick Matty up from school. I'd just crawl over to the passenger seat and pull out a ref photo and watercolor block and start sketching and painting. Water brushes come with their own water supply, so they make it easy.
