Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it!
Just a quick post today, here is a “4×4” piece called “Crimson Vine” I was fooling around with one night:
This is painting is acrylic on deep edge canvas. I love the variation of opaque and transluscent effect of the crimson hues. So I decided to take the colour further, on the face, in the form of a vine.
This painting provokes an interesting thought; how much does our environment seep into our selves… Wishing you a great rest of the week!
You know I like to experiment.
One day, I had some rag mat and wondered how watercolour would look on it. So I painted a face and whatever else came to me. Below is the result:
The effect was interesting and watercolour on mat board will work for limited techniques, but had its limits. For example, there’s not much room for scrubbing: the cotton fibres kind of pill up. But if you wanted to do a quick painting, it’s perfectly fine. It doesn’t take heavy washes and it’s not suitable for too much wet-on-wet since there is no sizing on the board.
I like to experiment and explore art medium in different ways. Do you like to experiment?
Wishing everyone an enjoyable weekend. 🌾
