Lake Powell Canyon II - Acrylic on TerraSkin

This is painted from the same photo as last week's painting.  The colors and lighting are pretty different though.   This painting is much larger than last week's and the majority of the painting was poured using liquid acrylics.  I went pretty bold with the color.  It's much brighter in real life.  There are things that I like best about each painting but I can't decide which one I like better overall.  I would love to have your comments.

  1. Love the colors in this but have to admit I like the first piece better. Not sure I could articulate why though. LOL But disregard any comments from me because I'm an art buffoon. I am fascinated by the pouring of paint I've seen over the years throughout the blogs. It gives that softness that I keep wishing I had in my own pieces.

  2. Sherry, you are NOT an art buffoon! I always appreciate your comments. I've decided I like the first one better. I probably should have chosen a different photo for the second painting. I think it lacks a freshness that the first one has.

  3. I also like the first version better because the tones are warmer. The second version has incredible cool colors, (shades of blue) and lately I can't get enough warm yellows!

  4. Thanks for your input Robin. You're right, the first one is much warmer and I think more inviting.
