It’s Fun Friday

Wow! The Acrylic and alcohol video below is awesome!

Have a great weekend!

I dream a lot. I do more painting when I’m not painting. It’s in the subconscious.

Experimental Techniques in acrylics

Yesterday I spent some time creating some interesting background textures with alcohol, wax crayons, salt, and lifting techniques with fabric, toilet paper, etc…

Afterwards I decided I would try some of these techniques on the canvas below, the under painting is almost finished, but it still needsĀ  more work before I can begin experimenting.


Below is an example of some of the techniques I played around with.


When I used the toilet paper lifting technique, some of the design on the paper was transferred to my painting. The toilet paper I used had these wonderful dotted spiral designs on it and although it’s hard to see in this photograph, they created a very interesting pattern.
