Still more longing for spring… Here in Minnesota, we have had a few days with above normal temperatures. Then, things dipped back down into the single digits.
This little painting was done a hand made pastel panel. I started with a piece of Masonite. I prepped it with 2 layers of acrylic gesso. Then, I painted the surface the bright orange liquid acrylics. That’s what you see in the lower right hand corner of the painting. Finally, I painted on a layer of Golden Acrylic fine pumice gel. You need to thin it with a bit of water to expose the pumice particles. If it’s done with a bristle brush, it gives a wonderful, random, surface to paint into.
