New work-in-progress





Sneak preview of some of new work — quite experimental at this point. I’ve recently taken an acrylic painting course with Timothy Hoey (Tim Rocks!) and he helped me start moving in a new direction with glazes and textures... fun!

I second that. I would like to know more. Just for starters, what brand of acrylic paint are you using? it must be a professional kind. and the medium you are using to create the texture and the layering?

I haven't yet done enough of this to really have developed my own 'formula' - but this is either Golden or Liquitex acrylics laid down in thin layers with Liquitex gloss medium. Some colours are glazed on very thinly with a mix of paint & medium. Quinacridone Gold is great for glazing. Lettering done with FW Acylics. If you want to glaze over lettering, allow to dry/cure for 40 days.
