Its been more than 30 years since experimenting with acrylic paints. I was never a fan of how the paint dried so quickly nor the consistency in the application to canvas. Well a lot has changed in 30 years and decided to give them another try.
With permission from Christine Hess, a local photographer to use a photograph for guidance and inspiration, an image of the Brink at Niagara Falls, Ontario was roughly sketch to canvas..
Adding Liquitex Gloss Heavy Gel and Slow-Dri Blending Mediums, gave the paint a little more legs to run along the canvas. While my preference is to paint with oils, the dry time for acrylic paints is much quicker and so is this project.
