I decided to paint a wave using acrylic this time.  I have so much acrylic paint that I have collected over the years, so I might as well use it.  I also had this large canvas in my stash of art supplies.  It feels good to use some of the supplies that I have around here.  I probably have enough to last me several lifetimes.  That just means that I need to paint a lot more.

Low Country

Water miscible oils
It feels good to paint a palette knife painting again.  It's been a while since I've used that tool.  I painted the panel with bright orange/red acrylic before I painted with the oils because I wanted the bright bits of color to peek through the more subdued landscape.

Wind and Rain

"Wind and Rain"

I painted this on a piece of Tyvek.  That is the material that some envelopes are made of that is white with a plastic feel.  I tried painting watercolor over it once and didn't like it.  It isn't absorbent at all, which is fine when I use acrylic.  I don't like using watercolor on non-absorbent surfaces as much because it is hard to layer and add darks without the previous layers lifting.  If I didn't paint using layers, it would be fine.  This Tyvek has a wonderful textural quality with wrinkles and other textures.  I would definitely try it again.

What can I say?  Just another wave painting to celebrate the beautiful, warm weather we have been enjoying!

Golden Koi

Watercolor, collage

I'm playing around painting koi once again.  They have always been one of my favorite painting subjects.    I attached rice paper before I started painting so that there would be some interesting texture added to the painting.
