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.
