Icy Wind – Another Acrylic Painting

I had such a blast last week getting back to the acrylics.

With one finished painting down, I just couldn’t wait starting on my second.

This time, though, I wanted it to look a bit more raw.

Giving that palette knife some serious impact.

So I tried out a new technique.

I started with some modelling paste.

That being dry, I added a few colours, letting them sit on the paper for a while to make some impressions.

I then removed the excess paint with my palette knife, and added another layer of colours on top.

I went on like this for quite a while, until I was happy with the result.

As a last touch, I used the pointy end of the knife to make some details in the still wet acrylic.

It ended up like this:

It’s nowhere near perfect, but I’m so very pleased with how raw it ended up looking.

Just like I know, and try to depict, our Norwegian nature.

So I hope you like it.

I hope you are doing alright in these troubled times.

And I hope you’re having a good day.

    1. That is wonderful to hear, Jo! Thank you for letting me know. There is something about this style which conveys a lot of what I’m going for, the raw yet delicate nature. I’m very glad you like it 🙂

  1. I think you nailed it. When the snow filled wind is howling around the corner of the house and it almost rips of your hat of, when you shiver and there’s no lee anywhere and no matter what you do, you’cold. This is exactly what it feels like. Sharp, dark and relentless. No mercy. This is what your painting feels like. Brilliant!

    1. Thank you so much, Kitty! There is no better feeling than when a painting conveys an emotion like that. It makes me very happy, and I’m very thankful that you told me 🙂
